The votes are in. The winner of this year’s student selected Pick a Seventies Flick is Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore. Twenty students voted in the poll, and each of the 20 students will receive four point extra credit on the Historical Event Summary Assignment.
Panic in Needle Park was a very close second in the voting, receiving five first-place votes, and only trailed the Scorcese film by 3 points. Very few students, it appears, were interested in seeing the seminal blaxploitation film Sweet Sweetback’s Badassss Song. The film received only one first-place vote, and fourteen of the remaining nineteen students voted it either as their fifth or sixth choice. Ouch!
