The company that Eileen works for, and which she eventually sues for sexual discrimination, is referred to throughout as "D,C and H." We learn those letters stand for "Dewey, Conham, and Howe" - an ancient joke-name for a law firm (along with its variations "Dewey, Cheatam and Howe" and "Cheatam and Steele"). See more »
The recording session of "Dancing In The Moonlight" is incorrect. The scene is shown happening some time after Nixon's re-election in November of 1972. However, the song was released by King Harvest in July 1972 and had already been a hit by this point. See more »
Compared to The 60's (1999), The 70's was a piece of television genius. Although there were some historical innacuracies, I was impressed overall at the way that the film makers were able to portray the heartache and disbelif felt within the USA and around the world during the decade that shaped the way the world looked at itself.
I am, however, concerned about the fact that the next mini-series to be produced, in order, will be The 80's :)
