Storyline

In this mockumentary spoof of "Paul Is Dead" theories, the summer of 2005, a package arrived at the Hollywood offices of Highway 61 Entertainment from London with no return address. Inside were two mini-cassette audio tapes dated December 30, 1999 and labeled "The Last Testament of George Harrison". A voice eerily similar to Harrison's tells a shocking story: Paul McCartney was killed in a car crash in November of 1966 and replaced with a double! British intelligence, MI5, had forced the Beatles to cover up McCartney's death to prevent mass suicides of Beatle fans. However, the remaining Beatles tried to signal fans with clues on album covers and in songs. Until now, the "Paul is Dead" mystery that exploded worldwide in 1969 was considered a hoax. However, in this film, the mysterious voice on the tapes reveals a secret Beatles history, chronicling McCartney's fatal accident, the cover up, dozens of unknown clues, and a dangerous cat and mouse game with "Maxwell," the Beatles' MI5 ...

Goofs

The film states that the final album recorded was 'Let It Be'. However in reality that album was recorded months before 'Abbey Road'. There was even a bootleg album of the 'Let It Be' sessions leaked to the public before 'Abbey Road' was released September 1969. See more »

Obviously fraudulent but still fun to watch
27 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yes, this film is entirely fraudulent. Yes, very little of it makes sense. Yes, it's insulting to the viewers intelligence. All of this is true.

But it's still fun to watch. The writer paints what can only be described as a hilariously creepy alternate history of the Beatles. You can of course write a list ten feet long of all the facts and details the film gets wrong, but that is entirely besides the point.

If you're a Beatles fan and can view this with a sense of humor rather than as a legitimate documentary, you'll surely get a bit of entertainment out of it.
