    Bloomsbury American Cinema of the 1970s Themes and Variations 2007 Edition by Lester D Freidman

    The 1970s was a decade of social upheaval that challenged the foundations of American culture: the killing of students at Kent State and Jackson State universities, the riots at Attica state prison, the Munich Olympic tragedy, Watergate, the Supreme Court's decision to legalize abortion, the end of American involvement in Vietnam, the signing of the Camp David Peace Accords, the nuclear accident at Three Mile Island, and the taking of American hostages in Iran. The director-driven movies of the 1970s reflected this turmoil, experimenting with narrative structures, offering a gallery of scruffy anti-heroes, and revising traditional genre conventions. American Cinema of the 1970s examines the range of films that marked the decade, including Chinatown, Jaws, Rocky, Getting Straight, Love Story, Shaft, Dirty Harry, The Godfather, Deliverance, Enter the Dragon, The Exorcist, The Conversation, Shampoo, Taxi Driver, Star Wars, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Saturday Night Fever, Kramer vs. Kramer, and Apocalypse Now.
