Tingle Bullet Theory

In The Tingler, a notable clip
is a scene where Vince goes on a trip
Is the actor allergic
to acid, lysergic?
It seems like his lobe's gonna flip

Vincent Price in The Tingler (William Castle, 1959). Price plays a pathologist researching the physical manifestation of fear. He injects LSD to frighten himself. Image source: Gregory's Shock! Theater; Bearded Weird Reviews. For a terrific multi-frame breakdown of Price's freakout, visit Arbogast on Film. Our centennial tribute to Vincent Price continues.

Norm believes this may be the first acid trip in film. Are there any drug/film historians out there to confirm this?
