Storyline

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 Anonymous

User Reviews

A DVD release of this film is essential
15 April 2002 | by mikesuebroomeSee all my reviews

All This and World War Two is essential Lennon and McCartney as recorded by other artists. Some interpretations and productions are next to brilliant. All this (and World War Two) is played on a backdrop of amazingly choreographed historical and artistic footage of the War in question. When can we see and hear this on disc in our own homes?
