Season Two Episode 4

Biting the Hands of Ed Sullivan & Andy Warhol, Eating a Fistful of Mace, & The Blue Lady Out of Control

As the Doors get more and more famous, Jim Morrison rides the coattails of his band to ever greater infamy. His run-ins with Ed Sullivan and Andy Warhol are the stuff of legend, but his more dangerous run-ins with the police and with a telephone pole illustrate a widening divide between what is real and what is fantasy.
