Carson Time Capsule... Monday, July 20

In the capsule today…

We find a controversial film starring Jack Nicholson and Art Garfunkel. When a theatre in Georgia showed the film "Carnal Knowledge," police arrested the theater manager and charged him with distributing obscene material. He was convicted… though this was later overturned by the Supreme Court.

We find the first twin-blade razor on the market. Gillette discovered the "hysteresis effect," where two blades work in tandem for a closer shave.

And we find a song on the radio by "Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynold," a soft rock group from Los Angeles. Though there are four first names in the band title, Joe Frank is one person, making the group a trio.

What is the year? (answer below).

The year... 1971!
