This scene from Quatre garcons dans le vent
is as insightful today as it was back in 1964. Written with breathtaking sharpness by Alun Owen it pits George against a corporate swine played with diabolical perfection by Kenneth Haigh –fresh off his turn in Mankiewicz’s Cleopatra
(Don’t worry, He’s in there somewhere)
What’s most fascinating about the Beatles movie scene is how little things have changed since 1964. Not simply in the world of advertising an pop music but the culture as a whole in that today’s politicians are being “sold” to us in precisely the same way. Hillary is “Susan.”
We are George
And Bernie ?
Cue Larry Hart.
