EAT THE DOCUMENT 1971
U.S. film. Commissioned by ABC-TV, Bob Dylan's film, Eat The Document, never saw the light of day. Why? With no film editing experience Dylan decided to edit the film himself and the results, while very entertaining, were simply too weird and perplexing for network executive to allow on television.

The film chronicles Dylan's 1966 British tour with his backing band, the Hawks, and includes footage from the legendary Manchester concert, where shouts of "Judas!" could be heard coming from the audience when Dylan switched to "electric" during the second half of the show.

Other scenes include Dylan and Robbie Robertson in hotel rooms writing songs, most of which have not be released. Songs include: "I Can't Leave Her Behind." The film includes a piano duet with Johnny Cash where they both sing Cash's, "I Still Miss Someone". Look for Dylan and (the Revolver era) John Lennon riding in the back of a hired car where they appear to be high on something.

Songs from the shows in the film include: "Tell Me, Momma," "I Don't Believe You (She Acts Like We Never Have Met)," "Ballad of a Thin Man," and "One Too Many Mornings." Note: the Hawks were originally the backing group for the late-50s, early-60s rocker, Ronnie Hawkins. After Dylan, the Hawks became the Band.
