 So here you are somewhere in the 70's. The major trends now seem to be disillusionment with government, the Women's rights movement, recreational drugs, the environment, advances in civil rights and the anti-war movement. Amid war, social realignment and presidential impeachment proceedings, American culture flourishes.  Indeed, the events of the times are reflected in and have become the inspiration for much of the music, literature, entertainment, and even fashion of the decade.

 The wildest fad surely is streaking nude through very public places!   Families vacation in station wagons and everyone wants an RV. The fashion influence of Sixties hippies continues in the Seventies, as men sport shoulder length hair and 1960's clothing is the rage, including bellbottom pants, hip huggers, colorful patches, hot pants, platform shoes, earth shoes, clogs, T-shirts, and gypsy dresses.  Denim is the fabrics of choice.  Leisure suits for men are commonplace, and women are fashionable in everything from ankle-length grandmother dresses to hot pants and micro-miniskirts.

 The term "rock & roll" has become nearly meaningless. This decade sees the breakup of the Beatles and the death of Elvis Presley, robbing rock of two major influences. Pop music splinters into a multitude of styles: soft-rock, hard rock, country rock, folk rock, punk rock and the dance craze of the decade, disco.

 The Seventies is the decade of the big comeback for the movies.  After years of box office erosion caused by the popularity of television, a combination of blockbuster movies and new technologies such as Panavision and Dolby brings the masses back to the movies. Television comes of age now as topics once considered taboo are shown on the airwaves for the first time.

 So sit back and enjoy your time here....The link's on the left will take you where you want to go...
