Did You Know?

Goofs

It is mentioned in the narration that Anton LaVey (founder of the "Church of Satan") was cast as the devil in Roman Polanski's "Rosemary's Baby". This is an urban legend and absolutely false. He had no involvement in the film at all. See more »

History Channel/Establishment Hogwash
25 December 2007 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Some amazing stock footage from the period is used to paint an ugly and grossly unfair picture of the so-called hippie movement. This commercial for establishment orthodoxy exposes the filmmakers astonishingly poor grasp of the history that fueled and molded the counterculture movements from 1965-72. Typical for History Channel pabulum, the narrative tries desperately to define the movements with drug use, more drug use, sexual perversion, more drug use, and then (in an act of brash and comical audacity) crowning Charles Manson as the prince of the hippies.

This is a story for people who believe Iraq was involved in 9/11 and that Fox News is a serious journalistic entity. And quite honestly, narrator Peter Coyote should know better than to lend his venerable voice to this exercise aimed at the "Leni Riefenstahl Fan Club."
