The Rutles, a hilarious spoof of The Beatles and the brainchild of Monty Python’s Eric Idle, made their first appearance in a short film on Saturday Night Live. Audience response was so overwhelming that SNL producer Lorne Michaels decided to go ahead with a full production, All You Need Is Cash, which originally aired on NBC-TV in the spring of 1978-six years before the more famous “mockumentary,” Spinal Tap. The extravaganza starred Idle and Neil Innes (the latter of whom wrote all of the music) and featured special guests Mick Jagger, Ron Wood, Paul Simon, John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd, Gilda Radner, Bill Murray, and even ex-Beatle George Harrison.

Follow four mop-topped young Brits whose right choice of trousers (tight) gets them a lifetime recording contract despite their lack of musical ability. Overcoming that, they produce monumental albums like Sgt. Rutter’s Only Darts Club Band, which, along with appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show and a concert at Ché Stadium, cement their world domination of pop music. But, as with their Fab Four namesake, artistic differences and various other problems threaten to derail Rutlemania. Don’t miss The Rutles’ wonderfully warped songs “Hold My Hand,” ”Love Life,“ ”Ouch!,“ ”Piggy In The Middle,“ ”Cheese And Onions,“ ”Get Up And Go,” and many other familiar-sounding tunes.
