    A routine trip to Tower this morning turned into a bargain bonanza. All
    of the Alpha Video titles were on sale for $6.99. It looks like Alpha
    specializes in releasing public domain titles on DVD. Yet, unlike the
    public domain titles from Madacy, the Alpha titles are watchable.

    Although they are not pristine in picture and sound, these Alpha DVD
    titles are still very entertaining:

    _Reefer Madness_ (1938) "Sin, degradation, vice, insanity. Drug crazed
    Abandon!" A case study of all-American high school kids Bill and Mary
    highlights the danger of marijuana use when the teens change from
    tennis-playing, iced tea-drinkers to fiendish, promiscuous, dope addicts
    after sampling one joint.

    _Marihuana_ (1936): "The picture that exposes hushed-up truths!" A young
    girl drowns while skinny-dipping at a beach party. Another teen gets
    pregnant after a turn with her boyfriend in the sand - both the result
    of dope smoking. The mother-to-be gives up her baby and becomes a
    hardened drug dealer, earning fur coats and diamond rings while coldly
    turning her clientele into drug addicts.

    _The Cocaine Fiends_ (1935): "Senses drowned in forbidden pleasures."
    A special "headache powder" leaves Jane feeling instantly exhilarated.
    Young sleigh-riding "snowbirds" find that their anxiety and fatigue can
    be instantly relieved by this wonderful medication. But the new miracle
    drug soon causes its users to spiral downward into hopeless depraved
    squalor and tragedy.
