Average Rating: 3.5 stars out of 5.
It was the year of the Beatles and the Civil Rights Act; of the Gulf of Tonkin and Barry Goldwater's campaign for the presidency; the year that Americans learned smoking was bad for their health and Cassius Clay became Mohammed Ali; the year that cities across the country erupted in violence and Americans tried to make sense of the assassination of their president. Based on The Last Innocent Year: America in 1964, the film will follow some of the most prominent figures of the time.

This is a great series. I wish they had other years documented like this. The years 1963/1964 were one of my first early memories; I remember being really scared for the first time when Kennedy was shot, and during the riots that summer. My dad voted for Goldwater, and remember all the kids making fun of me for that. But, The Beatles also arrived that year, and those good memories overshadowed most of the bad.

PBS has done it again very well done documentary. This movie was interesting, informative, and worse seeing!! I recommend this movie for all to see. Well worth the price of admission to any theater.
