Final 24: His Final Hours DVD
Street date 6/29/10
Documentary – 60 minutes
Description: This compelling documentary series unlocks the hidden secrets, psychological flaws and events that result in the tragic deaths of famed notorious and the iconic. Every episode maps out the final 24 hours of a different famous person’s life. The series weaves the star’s back-story with events from their last day, which lays bare the threads of fate that led inextricably from childhood to the moment of death. These are no ordinary biographies. They’re psychological detective stories attempting to uncover the mystery of why the celebrity died. February, 1979: Punk icon, suspected murderer and heroin addict Sid Vicious has just been released from Rikers prison in New York City. After a night of celebrating his freedom with friends and family, he wakes suddenly. Hell-bent on self-destruction, Sid ingests a massive amount of heroin into his recently drug free body. Sid is discovered dead the next morning. Join us as we delve into his past to uncover the series of events that led to Sid’s death and reveal for the first time a shocking revelation that sheds new light on his last day.
The first thing that struck me as I watched this dvd was how young Sid Vicious was during his short career with the Sex Pistols and at the time of his death. The image of a scared 21 year old boy leaving Rikers is sharply contrasted with the heroin addicted punk rocker who died later that night.
Now that I know more about his childhood and the years leading up to that final day, his story makes more sense. This boy didn’t have a chance.
RIP John Simon Ritchie aka Sid Vicious.
