index card – Why Raquel changes her name to Elle

In the film Dirty Dancing, Jack Weston seems to be separated at birth blood relative of Harvey Weinstein.  This link to Simon Wiesenthal wikipedia page, Autobiographical inconsistencies, may help to feed the taglines of a b-story plot within the public school system to crack down on HEAVY METAL music and its Nazi influences.

Wiesenthal would describe two people fighting over one of the lists he had prepared of survivors of the Holocaust; the two look up and recognize each other and have a tearful reunion. In one account it is a man and wife, and in another telling it is two brothers.*

In the imdb narrative for 1987 musical, DD is described as Spending the summer at a Catskills resort with her family, Frances "Baby" Houseman falls in love with the camp's dance instructor, Johnny Castle AND in the 1980s, HEAVY METAL might've reached its peak just before the FCC got itself involved in prohibiting radio stations from playing it.  In 1980, Church groups in Iowa organize record burnings of albums by The Beatles, Ravi Shankar, The Carpenters, Peter Frampton and John Denver, among others.  In 1984, The National Parent Teachers Organization (National PTA) adopts a resolution to encourage record companies to rate music according to the amount of violence, sex, profanity, or vulgarity it contains, and to include this rating on the covers of albums.  In 1985, Tipper Gore, wife of then Senator Al Gore of Tennessee, is offended by lyrics in a Prince album she has purchased for her daughter.  She helps form the Parents Music Resource Center (PMRC) to oppose explicit content in music.  The PMRC asks the Radio Industry Association of America (RIAA) to adopt a rating system.  The RIAA and the PMRC agree that a voluntary warning sticker, stating “Parental Advisory- Explicit Lyrics,” will be affixed to certain albums. Each record label is given the discretion to devise its own rating standards.  AND The parents of a nineteen-year-old bring suit against Ozzy Osbourne and CBS Records, claiming that the singer’s lyrics in his song “Suicide Solution” persuaded their son to commit suicide. The courts hold that the lyrics are Constitutionally protected speech.
