THE REVOLUTION'S HERE!
Here is the closing scene from the Movie, The Magic Christian. It was written by Terry Southern with additional material by John Cleese and Graham Chapman who make their first film appeances in great small roles,
The film stars Peter Sellers and Ringo Starr, with among others, Raman Polanski, Raquel Welch, Spike Milligan, Christopher Lee...you could no assemble a cast like this today.
The song to this scene is Something In the Air by Thunderclap Newman...I profiled this band last year. The 50 something barrel house style Pianist and the 15 year old Jimmy McCoulough with drummer Speedy Keene, Produced by Peter Townsend made some music that was of no other time or place.
I thought it was an oddly apt clip to watch...
because, THE REVOLUUTION'S HERE! AND YOU KNOW IT'S RIGHT!
