WHAT A YEAR IT WAS! is a fascinating look at the headline events and news-making personalities of 1971. Told through compelling pictures and words, this lavish hardcover volume covers all of the year’s biggest stories—the news, entertainment, sports, fashion, fads and people that changed our lives forever. Plus, a generous sampling of vintage ads will whisk you back to the day. 1971 was an exciting year in a captivating decade. “The French Connection” riveted movie audiences while “Fiddler on the Roof” had them singing along. Sean Connery starred in his 6th and final James Bond outing, as Clint Eastwood made “Dirty Harry” a film fan favorite. Those were the Days, when bigot Archie Bunker crashed onto the TV sitcom landscape in “All in the Family” and “Columbo” bumbled onto the scene of the crime. It seemed like everybody had Carole King’s “Tapestry” LP while Elton John and Led Zeppelin became huge. The Beatles, fresh from their breakup, remained busy, producing their strongest work as solo artists. “Jesus Christ Superstar” rocked Broadway. Guilty verdicts nailed the Manson family for their infamous murder spree. The Pentagon Papers saw release and ping pong diplomacy opened Red China to the West. Skyjacking was the new normal. The San Fernando earthquake shook California. Starbucks and the Quarter-Pounder became real while Americans walked on the moon for the third time. Muhammad Ali squared off against Joe Frazier in the Fight of the Century. And so much more! Wherever you were or weren’t in 1971, WHAT A YEAR IT WAS! will bring a sentimental smile to your face as you relive that very special time. Our big, classic hardbound yearbook is filled to bursting with stories, photos, and artwork detailing the movies, music, shows, sports, fashion, news, people, places, and events that made 1971 unforgettable.
