Format: DVD
Specialists in niche market material such as vintage programmers and TV shows, Pennsylvania-based ALPHA VIDEO is owned by Jerry Greene, founder of Collectable Records. Quality of their unrestored movie transfers varies from fair to good, based on condition of source material stock (often old 16mm broadcast prints). The only extras provided are a catalog insert and DVD-accessible title list.

THE DEVIL'S SLEEP (1949) is a strange low budget mix of the hip, the straight and the bizarre; it's also a none-too-good picture. Pill lingo abounds: bennies, dexxies, roofies, phenos and crosses, but then there's Lita Grey as a super straight judge who wears the weirdest false eyelashes you've ever seen. They look like something out of Uncle Miltie's Carmen Miranda imitation.

The sets are literally pasteboard, and it wouldn't surprise me if a crucial poolside sequence was shot at the home of producer George Weiss. Danny Arnold partly scripted. He was a core writer for NBC's COLGATE COMEDY HOUR and penned Jack Lemmon's comedy based on the life and art of James Thurber, THE WAR BETWEEN MEN AND WOMEN (1972-VHS only).

Mr. America 1948, George Eiferman is here as a fitness instructor. Eiferman is muscular in a pre-steroid sense. He's also a bit squat. This story of pills being sold via a ladies health spa is the flimsiest excuse for showing off plenty of cheese and beefcake. A prurient highlight is the "unclad Miss in the swimming pool" sequence. Unfortunately, that girl is Judge Lita's teen daughter.

This would have gotten five stars had Alpha's print have been better. The return of Umberto Scalli! Anything with Timothy Farrell deserves at least four stars. Also floating about (at least the trailer) as "Hopped Up". Ed Wood and good bad film fanatics look for all George Weiss productions.
