A concert film

Commemorating the Rolling Stones fateful Altamont Speedway concert, this classic documentary directed by Albert and David Maysles and shot by Haskell Wexler, shows the Stones in their prime yet struck by the violence at the tragic free concert at Altamont near San Francisco on December 6, 1969. 
 
The Stones' unfortunate decision to hire a Hells Angels chapter for event security erupted in disaster, with the one spectator’s death and multiple injuries. Considered one of the greatest rock documentaries ever made - the footage includes the Flying Burrito Brothers and Tina Turner giving a supercharged opening acts plus the Stones delivering defining renditions of "Brown Sugar," "Under My Thumb," and "Sympathy for the Devil” -  the film also demonstrates the powerful extremes of rock-n-roll in the late 1960s.
