Rather scarce poster for a hard-to-see but fascinating film, about a young drug addict's death in NYC. Writer/directer/star Raymond Phelan (a cinematographer for legendary Sexploitation auteur Doris Wishman) starting shooting the film in 1957. After completing the film and failing to find distribution, Phelan tried to stir interest by shooting additional sex scene, including one which featured Brenda Denaut (mother of Roseanne, Patricia, David and Alexis Arquette) and Andy Warhol favorite Taylor Mead (in his first film role)

When the sex scenes failed to spark any interest, Phelan made an unsuccessful attempted to take advantage of 1960 "Twist" dance craze by adding a dance scene and changing the title to "Twisted Morals". Finally, as the sexploitation genre took off, he got the film booked at the Rialto Theater on Broadway in NYC, where it had a successful run. After a couple more years in limited distribution throughout the U.S., it essentially disappeared until a 2017 revival at Anthology Film Archives in NYC.
