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 documentary of hippies 1960/70s
16 January 2009 | by (southwest US) – See all my reviews

(Showing in January 2009 on the history channel). I'm glad to see that they actually dug deeper than most newsreels of the time to research the individuals and groups that were an active part of the "hippie" rebellion movement. Most clips of the time just show lots of flower-power children of the time smoking dope and dancing, then we're off to Woodstock, for the freaks and problems of drugs, violence, and overcrowding. In this show, they research the individuals and groups that were involved, which is more than most reports did. Sure, drugs were involved, but also there was the rebellion factor; so many of the children watched their fathers work Mon-Fri, nine to five, and this ten years after the McCarthy hearings, the children were determined not to let a big government be completely in charge of their lives. Probably also some anger over the Kennedy assassination, the Vietnam war, and later, the Kent State shootings (see Wikipedia.org for info). The show also points out that by the time the Beatles and more run-away hippies arrived, the original goal had disappeared, and now it WAS just a bunch of hippy wanna-be's. Just my opinion. i welcome input... ksf-2
