Description

A savage kaleidoscopic review of the decade. Originally scheduled for use on CBS-TV, it was pulled off the network at the last minute as being too strong. The film includes historic news footage of such personalities as: the Selma police, private citizen Nixon, General Westmoreland, Martin Luther King, Stokeley Carmichael, The Beatles, President Johnson, etc., all doing their most memorable 'thing' of that decade. Through skillful juxtaposition of this material, Braverman has created a powerful social comment. [Source: Creative Film Society Catalogue, 1972]
