The History Behind Tarantino's 'Once Upon A Time In Hollywood'

With fighting in Vietnam, millions of people demanding love and peace, and one giant leap for mankind, 1969 was a very busy year. It was also an important one for Charles Manson, who spent the previous several years gathering a motley group of impressionable young people he called his "Family." Manson’s charisma and strange Hollywood connections helped draw people to him, and Manson filled the Manson Family with beliefs about a coming race conflict and his identity as the real Jesus Christ.

No stranger to depicting aggression, Quentin Tarantino adds the Manson story to his film output with the summer 2019 movie Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. While not much is known about the plot aside from Manson’s inclusion, a multitude of important events which happened that year might show up as well. Does Leonardo DiCaprio attend Woodstock? Will Margot Robbie be shown watching the very first episode of Sesame Street? Considering Tarantino’s love of obscure pop culture and the conflict and frustration in 1969, some great historic landmarks could be included.
