Assault & Flattery


Much like the Assault & Flattery performances of the 1950s, the shows of the 1960s comprised of sketches put on by various law school organizations and the faculty. Unfortunately the show took on a harsh, biting tone, offending faculty and others. Program cover: The First Annual Pae Keeton Law Week April 7-12, 1969Dean Page Keeton assigned Professor Byron Fullerton the task of screening Assault & Flattery submissions. However students frequently ad-libbed portions that had been omitted from the official script. As the 1960s progressed, the show suffered from declining student interest and tired material. As a result of these problems, Assault & Flattery ceased production in 1967. The show found new life in 1969 when mid-law Milt Oberman revived a more professional and good-natured version of Assault & Flattery, and the show became an official Law Week event.
