In a man walked upon the moon, the Woodstock music festival was held in upstate New York, Richard Nixon was sworn in as the president of the United States, the Beatles made their last public appearance, as did, after a fashion, Judy Garland, Dwight D.
Eisenhower, Boris Karloff, Joseph P. Kennedy, and Jack Kerouac, all of whom passed away that year. Something else passed away that year as well. In early July, just days before the moon landing, a low-budget exploitation movie, Easy Riderwas released. Its success would ultimately change the way movies would be made, and who made them, as well as how those movies looked and sounded, and which audiences those movies would be made for. Easy Rider: 50 Years of Looking for America will tell the story of Easy Rider on the fiftieth anniversary of its explosive release.

Please try again later. Verified Purchase. I am thoroughly enjoying this book! It is much, much better than I had hoped: informative, entertaining, and well-written. I wish it was longer. I read through it in a couple of sittings. I have never forgotten the vistas that the film opened up for me.
This book is a walk down memory lane. By Nightrider on January 14, Images in this review. Yeah, money, why else! A quick sentence or two. Anyone who knows film history, knows what a landmark film is. All these movies, for one reason or another, changed the landscape of movie-making.
Easy Rider is a landmark film. The author of this book, who you would assume as least understands that, or at least likes the movie he is writing about, here provides a very difficult read for any fan of this film. Jab after jab is thrown, even a positive review reprinted in the book becomes suspect, as the reviewer was only writing what he or she thought they needed to write to 'seem hip.
No heart, no soul. Not the real thing. Everything the movie Easy Rider is this author is not.
Very well researched and packed with hard to find info!! Great reading experience!! One person found this helpful. This is a fun, interesting read. A look back at the legacy left by the movie Easy Rider. This celebration of the 50 year anniversary of the release of the film that was at the forefront of a cultural change in movies, youth activism, and American society in general doesn't cover a lot of new ground. While it's interesting to read the author's perspective on how some of the scenes in the film have possibly been misinterpreted and reevaluated by the sensibilities of different generations of viewers over the years there is so much of the "true story" that has been lost, muddled, and misrepresented since it first premiered that I'm not sure how much can really be presented as "fact".
Almost all the major players have offered conflicting recollections over the years to the point where they often contradict their own stories. I don't have an extensive knowledge of the film or the story behind it but I do know one thing that the book gets absolutely wrong. While it is true that Phil Spector is currently serving time in prison for the murder of Actress Lana Clarkson the two were never married. When something as easily verifiable as that gets misrepresented you have to wonder about the rest of the story Still, in the end the book succeeds in giving a look back at the folklore surrounding the legend of Easy Rider.
Most of it is probably based in truth and some of it is almost certainly not. Like the film itself everyone will have their own interpretation. See all reviews. Customers who bought this item also bought. Your recently viewed items and featured recommendations. View or edit your browsing history.
