Dock Ellis: A Heavenly Flamboyant Psychedelic Comeback!

Dock Ellis: A Heavenly Flamboyant Psychedelic Comeback!

The Sundance Film Festival has announced its 2010 Jury Prizes, and James Blagden’s Dock Ellis and the LSD No-No was awarded an Honorable Mention in Short Filmmaking.  Blagden created an animated short film that tells a hilarious, meandering story about the former major league pitcher Dock Ellis, which leads him to one of his greatest moments in the sport.  It provides a  magical narration of his infamous no-hitter for the Pittsburgh Pirates against the San Diego Padres in 1970 while he was “high as a Georgia pie,” or specifically under the influence of LSD.  After retiring, he later worked as a drug counselor before passing away last December.
