The Doors by Tom DiCillo( Visual )

22 editions published between 1991 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 878 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A homage to 60's rock group The Doors. Doubles as a biography of the group's late singer, the 'Electric Poet' Jim Morrison. Follows Jim from his days as a film student in Los Angeles to his death in Paris in 1971, at the age of 27. Shown as a shy, though often obnoxious and crude, persona. He was a man who is fascinated with death, with man's will to have power, and how life gets very painful without the chemicals to open the mind

If he hadn't been a gangster, he might have been honored on a postage stamp, as the Father of Las Vegas. When Benjamin 'Bugsy' Siegel ventured west with some of the Eastern mob's investment funds in the early 1940s, he fell in love with the movies, and a feisty moll named Virginia Hill. Siegel had a vision, which gave rise to an historic plan to transform Las Vegas from a sleepy, sand-choked backwater into an international entertainment Mecca. Nobody shared his vision, but he knew that if he built it, they would come. He built it with other people's money, dangerous people like Meyer Lansky, Moe Green, and Charlie Luciano. While creating this seductive vision, he became so obsessed with it that he was rubbed out before he could see the modern city that sprang from his dream. In their posh Vegas boardrooms, though, the mobsters made out like bandits

We turn our attention to the end of the sixties; a time when there was dissent and war in the world and the chaos was reflected in the music with bands splitting up and moving on. The sixties began, according to Eric Burdon as 'a party'. 'The aim of all of us, Hendrix, The Who, The Stones'. Unfortunately, the party went sour. After the death of Epstein, the Beatles quarreled and split up. This episode shows the other side of the carefree sixties
