Wondering why times are missing?

Nuts!

This campy documentary by Penny Lane (We Are the Littletons: A True Story) relates the bizarre story of Dr. John Romulus Brinkley, an eccentric genius who built an empire in Depression-era America selling a goat-testical impotence cure. Using animated reenactments, interviews, archival footage and "a hilariously unreliable narrator," the film traces Mr. Brinkley's rise from obscurity to infamy with tongue-in-cheek humor and a sly emotional kick. 79 minutes Unrated.
