The Rutles: All You Need Is Cash

The Rutles: All You Need Is Cash

Before the famous music mockumentary This is Spinal Tap, there was THE RUTLES: ALL YOU NEED IS CASH. This story takes satirical aim at rock super-group The Beatles by chronicling the humorous rise and fall of a fictitious band called The Rutles. The talented cast of actors in the special include: Dan Aykroyd as the man who turned down The Rutles, John Belushi as Allen Klein parody Ron Decline, Bill Murray as a Murray The K parody, Gilda Radner as a reluctant street interviewee, George Harrison as a TV interviewer, Mick Jagger as himself, Paul Simon as himself, Michael Palin as a member of Rutle Corps, Ron Wood as a biker, Saturday Night Live producer Lorne Michaels as a man who wants to merchandise The Rutles, Al Franken and Tom Davis as Ron Decline employees, and many others. The program also includes actual footage of David Frost and Ed Sullivan taken from Beatles TV appearances. TVPG
