Man with drinking problem
16 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film stars Francis Ford as an alcoholic. I got the impression he was trying to discover a cure for alcoholism but I couldn't be sure. The print has Dutch inter-titles. Ford is a full blown alcoholic in the film. (I now know he had the formula for a powerful explosive. But the alcohol cure is funnier).

This film was long thought to be lost but a print has recently been found in the Netherlands. It can be viewed on the internet. Though it is listed as a horror film, it really isn't one. Ford has hallucinations due to the DTs. And there appear to be ghosts or out of body apparitions but I couldn't be sure due to the language barrier.
