But interesting, nevertheless….
On April 16, 1970, a federal grand jury indicted the Seattle Liberation Front (SLF) leaders for conspiracy to riot in planning a February 17, 1970 demonstration in Seattle.
One of the members, Jeff Dowd, went on to be a big Hollywood agent. He goes by the name “The Dude”.
The Coen Brothers made a film about him called “The Big Lebowski”.
It become an underground hit. Now it has a cult following and a group of fans have festivals and film screenings and bowling and costume parties all based on the film.
The next “Lebowski Fest” is coming to Seattle March 9th.
And Jeff Dowd, the actual real live “Dude” and one of the original Seattle Seven, will be in attendance.
