As the producers were putting the documentary together, they located a piece of film shot 10 years earlier of Robert F. Kennedy after he completed a tour of Willowbrook. He said, "Willowbrook was a disgrace." Despite Kennedy's anger and compassion, nothing was done about it.
Geraldo Rivera, the film's correspondent, is quoted, "I can show you what it looked like and what it sounded like, but I can never show you how it smelled and the horrible conditions."
The film won the 1972 Peabody Award.
