Storyline

The discussion of the Vietnam War at the Democratic National Convention, where many expect the party to come out with an official anti-war policy, has an effect on the populace and in turn the personal and professional lives of many of those at the merged company, which is still going through growing pains. They still have no name, and no consensus of a name on the horizon. And there is still an "us" and "them" mentality by many. But work continues. Don, Roger and Harry are heading to Los Angeles to deal with their Carnation and Sunkist accounts among others. The east versus "left" coast mentalities become evident. And between the three, there are differing priorities for this trip. But they all end up indulging in the California counter culture, which especially affects Don. Ted is dealing with the problematic Chevy account in Detroit. Jim is not happy dealing with the Manischewitz account as he sees it as a leftover of SCDP, the creative which is led by Ginsberg who he doesn't like ... Written by Huggo

An Uneven Tale **1/2
3 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As the Democratic National Convention of 1968 explodes into utter chaos on the streets of Chicago, we have turmoil at the office of our guys. They can't even seem to be able to agree on a name for their newly minted firm. Various names are bandied about.

Don and Roger take a trip to Los Angeles for business purposes, but soon become part of a wild Hollywood party, where Don smokes something other than his ordinary cigarettes, and soon begins to hallucinate. When he envisions his wife there, this to me relates to guilt for what he is currently doing when she enters the scene.

Back in New York, our two gals at the firm vie for control by attempting to bring Avon on board for our illustrious firm.
