FINE & RARE 1973


The Year that Was

The United States and The People’s Republic of China agreed to establish liaison offices following President Richard Nixon’s visit to mainland China. Pablo Picasso and JR Tolkien both die in this year, and the controversial 18-rated horror film ‘The Exorcist’ shocks cinema-goers worldwide. Meanwhile the Scotsman, Jackie Stewart, wins the last of his three Formula One World Championship titles.
