The rise-and-fall story of Dr. Max Jacobson of New York (1900-1979), physician to President Kennedy and Jackie Kennedy, Truman Capote, Tennessee Williams, Alan Jay Lerner and hundreds of other celebrities for decades. After a New York Times expose, Jacobson lost his license amid charges he inappropriately laced his pick-me-up injections with amphetamines -- "speed." Jacobson was one of several so-called "Dr. Feelgoods" with big-name patients. Widespread public abuse of amphetamines provoked new federal restrictions and put an end to the open Dr. Feelgood era. More than a year of research and interviews went into this production.
