    Despite what Nicki and Don said tonight Easy Rider was the third highest grossing film in 1969 behind only Bonnie & Clyde and The Graduate. It took in $41 M in US and $60 M worldwide. It won the Cannes Film Festival First Film Award. (Prix de la première œuvre).

    Again, as for the war winding down in 1969. Nixon understood that he enjoyed the support of his “silent majority” only so long as the was seemed to be winding down, which is why he kept announcing troop withdrawals : 65,500 in 69, 140,000 in 70, 160,000 in 71 and 157,000 in 1972. US casualties went from 9,414 in 1969 to 4,204 in 1970 to 300 in 1972.
