Zotz! (1962): Directed by William Castle

Tom Poston (TV’s “Newhart”) finds a Zotz coin and discovers its awesome powers. After attempting to share its secret with the U.S government (where, initially, he is brushed off as a lunatic), his discovery captures the interest of foreign agents, who attempt to steal it.

To promote the film, William Castle provided each filmgoer with a “magic” coin which, unfortunately, did absolutely nothing.  Zotz! has a running time of approximately 87 minutes and is not rated.
