This is what the Nazis saw when they opened the Arc in Raiders of the Lost Arc.
This movie makes Magical Mystery Tour look like Citizen Kane. Hokey!
Corny! Horrible! Do yourself a favor and just fast forward to
Aerosmith's performance. What a way to Dis the Beatles. George Martin
should be ashamed of himself! This movie could have been made by
Fellini. It's one freak show after another. Just when you think it's
bad, George Burns gets up and sings "Fixing a Hole". He sure fixed the

that's the ticket.
