It created a 40 year memory
3 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was shown in my sophomore social studies class. It came out on PBS in 1970. Granted, one is impressionable at age 15, but I remember feeling the unfairness of age-based discrimination, and the unfairness of having one's contributions ignored based on some arbitrary standard. I still remember Jack Gilford's performance and the beach scenes. I'd like to see it again simply to see if it holds up as well as I remember.

To meet the line police requirements "TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim, Because it was grassy and wanted wear; Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same - Robert Frost
