Simon King of the Witches Starring Andrew Prine

Simon King of the Witches was by far the closest to the Spirit of the 60s in Hollywood's output. It's dated 1970, but it really exists in 1967 in content and film values. Simon is a modern-day witch (the Wiccans would disavow him by & large, but this is a pop fantasy, so bear with a few inaccuracies) who lives in a sewer and carries a magic dagger with him everywhere, violating the knife laws of Los Angeles, but he is a witch, after all, and all witches carry magic daggers in pocket or purse ... it's far better in quality and concept than most of this genre and time period.
