The phrase "The child is father of the man" best describes the juxtaposition of people involved in the final day of filming on the HBO movie "Conspiracy: The Trial of the Chicago 8" (reviewed by Dan Sullivan on Page 10). In a cramped studio in Glendale last January, seven of the original defendants whose anti-Vietnam protests disrupted the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago met for the first time since they stood trial the following year for conspiracy and intent to riot.
