Editorial Reviews

Prospective Harvard law student Peter Harkness is learning about crime firsthand. He skips his entry exam to transport a suitcase full of pot from Berkeley to Boston, setting in motion a comic adventure that has him in love with a cool hippie chick and in deep with the mob, a crooked cop and a cigar case stuffed with heroin. Based on a flower-power novel by Michael Crichton (ER, Jurassic Park), Dealing boasts a 40-brick-load of talent: film-debuting John Lithgow as a most unusual campus dealer, Barbara Hershey as the hippie chick and Charles Durning as the narc who keeps a cut of the contraband for himself. Groovy, man!

Format: DVD
[DEALING - 1971 (not '72) - Widescreen - Directed by Paul Williams] A controversial (for the time) look at a then-popular fad among college kids looking for thrills and fast cash - making an inter-state drug run for your dope-dealing friend or roommate. Not ever exactly a well-conceived plan, but it was usually hatched when all parties were baked and, back then before interstate drugruns were a Federal felony and domestic airflights were savvy to such practices, the odds were clearly in favor of the runner. How do I know this, you may ask? Well, keep asking...

Robert F. Lyons (also great in 'The Todd Killings', another solid Warner Archives release even better than this flick) is a typical stoner college kid who rooms with John Lithgow (a debut for both him and his full head of hair), a privileged pot dealer who smuggles his bricks from Berkley to his Cambridge campus at Harvard, when he's not engaging in campus musical productions and piano playing - clearly funding the arts the best way he knows how. He never does the dirty deed or takes risks himself, that's what friends are for. So Lyons heads to Berkley with a couple of empty suitcases, meets giggly hippie chick Barbara Hershey, fills the suitcases and sees the sights with hippie Hershey before his flight departs. They drive around, get stoned, screw at the recording studio she works at and she sees him off after getting him off the ground for the second time that day ("Those were the days, my friend, I thought they'd never end"...).

Once back in Cambridge, he misses her enough to convince Lithgow to let her hop a flight with 20 keys (approx. 45 pounds, as a key is around 2.25 lbs., for those of you with a thirst for drug math), and she's just carefree and stupid enough to do it.

nice story. good to see people who latter became stars, John Lithgow, not as good as it could have been with better tighter direction.

While my expectations may have been too high, since I enjoyed the book so much, it was the absolute worst movie I've ever sat through from beginning to end. I am sure I have seen worse, but I gave up on them long before the end. Kept hoping it might redeem itself eventually, but it only got worse.
