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
The Planes. The Janes. The Blitz.

(1962) and Tora! Tora! Tora!
(1970) as well as some archival material used from services archives. See more
