Week 1: The Rutles: All You Need is Cash (1978)
Quote of Interest:
“Well, one day this rather odd chap hopped into the office. He’d been to see virtually everyone in the business and been shown the door. He asked to see MY door, but I wouldn’t show it to him. Instead, he showed me the photographs and tapes of the Rutles. They were pretty rough, but they had something…I think it was the trousers.”–archie macaw
