Ever watch an episode of "Leave It to Beaver" and think, "I wonder what June Cleaver would be like on LSD"? Have we got a treat for you!
No, we don't have footage of the Beaver's mom (aka Barbara Billingsley) tripping out at Timothy Leary's house. But in the course of researching a biography on writer Aldous Huxley, author Don Lattin did stumble across footage of an LSD experiment involving a 1950s wife. According to Lattin, the clip was made for a 1956 television show on mental health issues.
The video, almost nine minutes long, shows Dr. Sidney Cohen dosing a volunteer at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Los Angeles. The volunteer said in the clip that her husband -- an employee of the hospital -- told her that Cohen was "looking for normal people" for the experiment, so she came forward. After saying that she was "a little nervous," the unnamed woman drinks a glass of water with LSD mixed into it. Soon thereafter, she's riding on the magic cloud often rhapsodized about in song by musicians of the '60s and '70s.
"Everything is in color and I can feel the air. I can see it, I can see all the molecules," she says. "I'm part of it. Can't you see it?" Dr. Cohen asks, "How do you feel inside?" She replies, "Inside? I don't have any inside."
