   Movie Summary: [Music]

    Called "the greatest rock film ever made," this landmark documentary follows the Rolling Stones on their notorious 1969 U.S. tour and features definitive live performances of "Satisfaction," "Jumping Jack Flash," "Honky Tonk Woman," and eight other Stone Classics. For security, members of The Hell's Angels were hired to work crowd control. When it was all over, four babies were born; and when 300,000 members of the Love Generation collided with a few dozen Hells Angels, four people died at San Francisco's Altamont Speedway. Direct cinema pioneers David and Albert Maysles and Charlotte Zwerin immortalized on film the bloody slash that transformed a decade's dreams into disillusionment. The Criterion Collection and Home Vision Cinema are proud to present the 30th Anniversary restored version of "Gimme Shelter."
