MOVIE HISTORY – 4 DECADES AFTER IT WAS MADE, “HAIR”, HAS BEEN RE-COLOURED & RESTORED

BLOUIN Art Info – “maybe four decades have gone by, but “Hair”, the movie seems to be a story as fresh as it was when first released. The 1979 anti-war drama film was based on the 1968 Broadway musical “Hair: An American Tribal Love-Rock Musical”.

<PHOTO ABOVE – the Canadian cast of “HAIR” at TORONTO’s Royal Alexandra Theatre in 1969.  The musical ran for 52 sold-out weeks, complete with the controversial nude scene>When a tribe of freedom-loving hippies is confronted with the realities of war and an oppressive government hell-bent on conflict, they become even more committed to their ideals of freedom, liberty from social shackles and the space to form individual expression…through “long, beautiful Hair”
