The Love-Ins is a 1967 exploitation film about LSD that was directed by Arthur Dreifuss. The film is loosely based on the 1960s American figure, Timothy Leary and represents the 1960s San Francisco scene, particularly that of the Haight-Ashbury district. The plot basically centers on a Timothy Leary type figure becoming the head of a cult-like following of hippies who all enjoy the effects of LSD. The production seems to be a typical representation of the producer Sam Katzman's work. The film featured a number of different musical acts popular at the time. The themes dealt with drug use and martyrdom. The film was generally poorly received with a few exceptions. (Wikipedia)
