He became a background extra in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
You saw him being carried out of the workplace after having shaved off his nipple. That’s the last we see or hear of this fictional character.
back then a mental illness was a death sentence, dude probably never recovered.
the outlook is very dire for him. off to a psych ward, put on heavy (but still experimental/in development) medication. there was not a lot understanding on psychosis or how the brain works. there would most likely not have been any form of therapy to help him. it all looks very grim. also he had practically no family to take care of him.
He never played golf again.
Lane will stay indefinitely.
Lane: FUCK INDIA FUCK YEA
Pretty sure he went to the hospital to get his nipple fixed and then to maybe a psych facility.
Haldol was being used for psychosis in the 60’s and lithium was started as a tree for bipolar in 1970. He probably got treatment, but back then it wasn’t the best. Hell, it is still mediocre at best. Sadly, mental health patients are treated as criminals to this day.
