Watchmen PSA: The Keane Act and You (1977)

The Watchmen viral website The New Frontiersman has posted a new retro Government Public Service Announcement from 1977 titled “The Keene Act & You”. The video explains the new government act to make the streets safer by removing costume vigilantest: No Masks, No Capes, No Gadgets or Experimental Weapons, No Dangerous Unlicensed Vehicles.

I like these short clips that provide a bit of background for The Watchmen. It’s not easy to cram all of this into a movie, but take two or three minutes with a few short movies and you’ve layed some nice groundwork for the uninitiated.
