At last--it's election day! Celebrate with "Wild in the Streets," 1968 Hollywood's take on youth culture run wild. Max Frost, the 24-year-old president elect and world's most popular entertainer lowers the legal voting age to 14. Everyone over 30 is put in a prison camp and forced to ingest LSD. Starring Shelley Winters as Mrs. Daphne Flatow.

So if Max Frost was 24 then, he'd be 68 today. Sobering.
