Hi everyone,

A real treat today - this is a trailer for the movie "I Love You, Alice B Toklas". It typifies the era, from the philosophy through to the hip clothing styles. Indulge and enjoy!

I Love You, Alice B. Toklas is a 1968 comedy film starring Peter Sellers, directed by Hy Averback and featuring music by Harpers Bizarre. The film is set in the counterculture of the 1960s.

The addition cast includes David Arkin, Jo Van Fleet, Leigh Taylor-Young (in her film debut), and a cameo by the film's co-author Paul Mazursky. The movie's title is a reference to writer Alice B. Toklas, who wrote a 1954 cookbook that featured making cannabis Brownies.

Attorney Harold Fine is set to marry his longtime girlfriend Joyce, but is having deep second thoughts. He encounters his brother, a hippie living in Venice Beach, and falls for an attractive flower power hippie girl (played by Leigh Taylor-Young) who has a knack for making pot brownies.

Harold ends up running out of his wedding to live with the hippie girl and attempts to find himself as well with the aid of a guru.
