It is likely that few now remember the fad in the late 1970s which touted the powers of pyramidal shapes with proportions mimicking those of the Great Pyramid at Giza. Such constructions were thought to promote long life, restore sharpness in razor blades, and act as a panacea for any ailment. This documentary, apparently designed to sell pyramid-power products, prefigures the later trend of television "infomercials" which were created with a similar intent. The majority of the film is devoted to interviews, recaps of history, and various sorts of investigations. Only towards the end does it become more sales-oriented. Among those appearing are some notables from the Stanford Research Institute and a gaggle of representatives of various cults and groups from California.
