Beatles' "significance" pushed to the breaking point in this bizarre documentary that juxtaposes their songs (sung by a number of rock stars) with World War II newsreel footage. Helen Reddy sings "Fool On The Hill" while Hitler relaxes at Bertchtesgaden, and Rod Stewart husks "Get Back" while Nazi troops goose step.Written by
I liked this very unique film and wish it were available!
For those who don't read the message board: I first saw this film on cable TV about 1977-78. Since I'm into history (especially military, especially WW2), film, and music (not an unequivocal Beatles fan--I liked their Revolver/ Rubber Soul period best), I loved it. I got the soundtrack record album, which had photos, but really wanted the film. I checked the film books each year, but if listed at all, it was as not available on tape or disc. I kept looking for it to air again on TV (so I could tape it), but never saw it. Now that I'm into DVD, I'm hoping it'll be released in that format.
