Film: The Rutles: All You Need Is Cash: Bristol Slapstick Festival 2023, Watershed, Bristol, 2023
The Rutles: All You Need Is Cash is a 1978 film written by and starring Eric Idle and Neil Innes. A brilliant comic spoof of Beatlemania, to watch the film on a Sunday morning at the Bristol Slapstick Festival was a highlight. The cast list included Idle, Innes, Dan Ackroyd, John Belushi, Bill Murray, George Harrison, Bianca Jagger, Michael Palin and John Halsey who played the drummer in the band. It was wonderful to see a pre-screen interview with John Halsey who plays the band’s drummer in the film.
