The 70's Bellbottoms to Boogie Shoes
A Visual Celebration of an Outrageous Decade! Relive the good old days of platform shoes, polyester, leisure suits, mood rings, and disco!
A celebration of a decade filled with crazy fads and outrageous fashions, which were really more lighthearted than substantial in their contributions to society. Still, they were definitely LOTS of fun! 'The 70's: Bellbottoms to Boogie Shoes' is an irreverent look at the people, places, and events that may seem inconsequential in hindsight, but are the foundation and cherished memories of everyone who came of age during that decade. Watch and be reminded about the days when platform shoes, polyester, LED watches, AMC Pacers, leisure suits, pet rocks, mood rings and disco were the order of the decade.
Hosted by Danny Bonaduce.

On one hand, it does have some material that really isn't suitable for children. So parents should probably screen it first.
But on the other hand, it does neatly break the 70s into 10 chapters. Obviously, this dvd only has 1 1/2 hours to convey what happened in 10 years. So it can only cover so much.
But that said, it does offer us a nice quick glance. It mentions how the 70s were a reaction against not only the 50s, but the 60s as well. We get to see the fashions, and some important historical events.
It also allows us to see some of the shows and movies that were popular, as well as the rise and fall of Disco.
Interestingly, it shows the great things about Studio 54, but also the dark side in how certain powers played God.
While it offers some comical elements, it also has some really sad moments such as the death of Elvis.
Overall, it's a great package that gives a nice quick look at the decade. I do suggest it if you are looking for some 70s nostalgia. But I also agree with the reviewer who said that some of it is not fit for children.
If you survived the 70s and haven't seen this yet, it is a MUST see!
