Apparently, said people never saw All This and World War II.
It's one of the most, er, wiggy cult classics of all time, a mixture of vintage WWII footage (including Nazis edited to march back and forth in time to the music) with a soundtrack of Beatles classics, as rerecorded by Ambrosia, Elton John, the Bee Gees, Leo Sayer, Bryan Ferry, Roy Wood, Keith Moon, Rod Stewart, David Essex, Jeff Lynne, Lynsey De Paul, Richard Cocciante, The Four Seasons, Helen Reddy, Frankie Laine, the Brothers Johnson, Status Quo, Henry Gross, Peter Gabriel, Frankie Valli, Tina Turner, Will Malone, and the London Symphony Orchestra.
Released in 1976, it spent a week in theatres, and then vanished, never to be seen on home video. According to Wiki, Terry Gilliam was supposed to direct, but mercifully declined the opportunity.
All I can say is -- eat your heart out, Julie Taymor.
