Confessions of an Opium Eater is a 1962 American film produced and directed by Albert Zugsmith. It is loosely based on the 1822 autobiographical novel, Confessions of an English Opium-Eater, by Thomas De Quincey. After circulating for years as a bootleg, it was released on DVD as part of the Warner Archive Collection in 2012. The film was something of a departure for Price; the prolific actor never performed another role that involved so much physical action. (Wikipedia)
