Keith Godchaux in The Grateful Dead Movie

The Grateful Dead Movie

1977 PG

Acclaimed documentarian Leon Gast filmed the Grateful Dead in 1974 when the band was in full flower. This offbeat movie features hallucinatory, animated images interspersed with performances of Grateful Dead hits. Included are "Truckin'," "Stella Blue," "Casey Jones" and "Sugar Magnolia." Gast also goes behind the scenes with the group and interviews many of their stalwart fans, all the while trying to grasp the unique allure of the Dead "experience."
