ALL THIS AND WORLD WAR II
« on: September 06, 2004, 07:39:59 AM »

Does anyone know anything about this movie? Apparently a lot of different artists did versions of Beatles songs for it. I've never heard of it. Would it be worth getting? Here's a photo that list the soundtrack. It's an 8-track! How weird!! I wanna hear Moon's version of When I'm 64. I'd get it just for that!

Moon's Version of "When I'm Sixty Four" ist great.

Here hearded himself:

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.

Thanks for the info and Moon link!! I knew Keith's version would be tongue and cheek. I kinda like it though! But then, I love everything about the man. I'd like to hear some of the others, but I don't know about Leo Sayer!!!! Isn't he the guy who did You Make Me Feel Like Dancing!! Ugh!

I've seen the album around and always wondered what the film would be like - and now I know! What a dreadful concept for a film!!! :)

I've never seen the film and it's the first news I have of its existence. How interesting!

I'm afraid these kind of videos aren't on display here in Spain. Once again I'll have to try amazon...

Off topic but how the hell did the beatles let Robert Stigwood make that wretched Sgt. Pepper movie? It brought shame to it's name alone! Just was thinking that when this topic came up!
