366 Days at the Drive-In: Day 47

The Date: November 16

The Movie: Easy Rider (1969)

What Is It?: Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda explore the American South on their motorcycles and conclude that this probably wasn’t a smart thing for a couple of long-haired hippies smuggling cocaine in their gas tanks to do. A New Orleans acid trip is the centerpiece of the film, and its haunting authenticity suggests the cast and crew really did their homework on this scene.

Why Today?: On this day in 1938, Dr. Albert Hofmann first synthesizes LSD.
