What Do You Get When You Mix Lana Turner With LSD?

Tonight as part of their cult movie series "TCM Underground", the channel airs the 1969 film The Big Cube. Until a couple of weeks ago, I didn't even know this movie existed. I don't know where TCM digs these movies up, but I'm glad they do. The Big Cube stars Lana Turner as a former actress named Adriana who marries a wealthy tycoon, who later dies in an accident. The tycoon's daughter, who despises Adriana, hatches a plot to drive Adriana insane with drugs so she and her drug-addict boyfriend can marry and inherit all the money for themselves.

Whenever a movie marries old Hollywood with 60s psychedelia, unintentional hilarity is inevitable. If you wanna join in on the campy fun, you can catch The Big Cube late Friday/early Saturday at 2 am EST on Turner Classic Movies.
