I read this book in high school in the late 80's just as it wasreleased. The book was excellent and gave a great educational lesson onHIV and AIDS. The movie was just as good. I was really touched at theend when &quot;The last song&quot; by Elton John was playing. The movie gave agreat time-line of the virus.<br><br>It is so terrifying to think AIDS has actually been around sinceprobably 1959 when a blood sample from a man from the Congo had died ofa mysterious illness, and tests run on the blood sample today showed hedid indeed have AIDS. The movie was very touching, this whole topicleaves a lump in my throat. I was 13 when AIDS had started making thenews and in 1985 or 1986 my dad had a blood transfusion. We spendmonths worrying if he had contracted HIV. Thank god he got clean bloodand he dodged a bullet, unlike the 25,000 people in the 70 and 80's whoreceived tainted blood.<br><br>I got teary eyed when an HIV+ guy in the movie says &quot;This is not apolitical issue. This is a health issue. This is not a gay issue. Thisis a human issue. And I do not intend to be defeated by it. I came heretoday in the hope that my epitaph would not read that I died of redtape.&quot; <br><br>The predictions were accurate. The scientists predicted there would be40 million people worldwide infected with HIV by the turn of thecentury and that number has proved to be pretty much dead on,literally.

And The Band Played On is an extremely powerful movie. This movieshould be required viewing in any high school. The fact that it took soincredibly long for the then higher powers to admit to the existence ofAIDS is stunning and sad. The performances throughout the movie weremoving and effective. I thought that Sir Ian McKellan and Richard Gererepresented respectfully the signs of strength and fear.<br><br>I was also disheartened to learn that throughout this tragedy, therewere individuals who might have been more concerned with helping andprotecting their own reputation and agenda as well as accepting thecredit for their work in breaking down point by point the disease knownas AIDS. Alan Alda as Dr. Gallo was fascinating. In fact all of theperformances from Matthew Modine and Richard Gere to Steve Martin andBD Wong were great. The most important thing here though is the historyof this disease and the hope that we can learn from it.

I decided to watch this movie again tonight for the first time inseveral years. I lived in San Francisco when the epidemic began and hada first hand view of the fear, paranoia, and grief.<br><br>The movie brings back memories of worrying about my gay child and manyof my friends. We attended more than a few memorial services. My son,praise be, is fine.<br><br>The best thing about watching it so many years later is to realize howfar we've come since then. AIDS is no longer the death sentence it oncewas. The book and the film did a great deal to raise public awareness.HBO was courageous, the actors were all first class and I believe itwas realistic in its portrayal of the heroes, the villains, and thepublic ignorance and apathy of the time.
