March Madness 3: Far-Out, Mind-Blowing Party Scenes of the 60s

As a further distraction from current events, take a metaphorical dose, smoke an imaginary reefer and join me on a journey into the Swinging 60s’ grooviest and most happening movie party scenes.

By the time of DRACULA A.D. 1972 the 1960s had obviously ended, but the hip young folks at Hammer Films in leafy Bray hadn’t quite got the message:
