ALL THIS AND WORLD WAR II 1976
U.S. film. It's a Reich 'n' Roll movie featuring dancing Nazis and music by John Lennon and Paul McCartney! What can you say about a film that combines footage from World War II with scenes from Hollywood war films and sets both to a soundtrack of Beatles songs performed by other artists?
Here's what others have said…"Bizarre, strange, ghastly, tasteless, audacious, catastrophic, reckless, ridiculous, absurd, avant-garde, and stupid." But hey, no one has ever called it boring! Actually, it's the ultimate "midnight movie" that is, if you agree that a midnight movie is a film where plot and story line are secondary to flashing sights and sounds that become surreal when you're stoned on Acapulco Gold and Orange Sunshine!
…marching Nazi's and Hitler rallies set to the tune, "Magical Mystery Tour." Witness
…Neville Chamberlain at the precise moment that the lyrics "living is easy with eyes closed" are sung from "Strawberry Fields Forever." Watch
…Hitler during "Fool on the Hill" and Mussolini during "Nowhere Man" and many, many
more maddening moments!
Here is a sampling of the songs you'll hear: Elton John
: "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds." The Bee Gees
: "Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight." Keith Moon
: "When I'm Sixty-Four." Rod Stewart
: "Get Back." Jeff Lynne
