Watch No No: A Dockumentary - Alternative Versions.
Greetings again from the darkness. Caught this one at the Dallas
International Film Festival, and the most impressive part of director
Jeff Radice's approach is just how much he attempts to tackle. Most
baseball fans immediately associate the name Dock Ellis with his much
publicized 1970 no-hitter thrown while under the influence of LSD.
Radice doesn't focus on the baseball side of this story, but rather
much more of the man and the times.
One must be of a certain age to have watched Dock Ellis pitch (he
retired in 1979), and the era must be considered when understanding his
often outspoken and arrogant behavior. Jackie Robinson had long ago
broken the color barrier in baseball, but it wasn't until the early
1970's when things really started to change. 1971 saw the first all
black and brown lineup from the Pirates (with Dock Ellis on the mound).
The blacks and Latins interviewed here recall the moment they noticed.
In addition to his baseball and related antics, we get some history on
his marriages, style, drug abuse and struggle to remain healthy near
the end of his career. Radice scores with the numerous interviews of
former teammates, as well as friends and family. Steve Blass and Bruce
Kison provide a contrast to the words of Dave Cash, Mudcat Grant and Al
Oliver, but the most insight comes from Ellis' friends and family. This
is where we see the hope and disappointment that Dock produced.
We also see the later years as Dock became a drug counselor and
educated many on the mistakes he had made. Radice uses a 1981 movie
called "Dugout" features former major league pitcher Bo Belinsky
talking to little-leaguers about the importance of staying on the right
track ... the parallels to the career of Dock Ellis are obvious.
Some terrific game footage is used, but one of the most interesting
moments occurs when Brad Corbet, Jr explains how his father (former
owner of Texas Rangers) had interaction with Dock Ellis the player, and
later with Dock Ellis the addiction counselor. There is also much made
about "everyone" in baseball being on "greenies" (amphetemines) during
the era ... an interesting contrast to the steroid era. The main thing
we learn is that there was much more to Dock Ellis than LSD and curlers
in his hair.
