Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band

Released 1978
Distributor Universal

Vaudeville lives again in this notoriously square concoction from music producer Robert Stigwood, using most of the Beatles songs from the albums Sgt. Pepper and Abbey Road. Generally considered one of the all-time turkeys of the 1970s.

About Josh Olson

Josh Olson  was the only student in his second grade class to see The House That Dripped Blood.  Many years later, he wrote and directed the no-budget horror film, Infested, a brutal assault on The Big Chill, with zombies. He went on to write the screenplay for A History of Violence and was nominated for the WGA, BAFTA and Academy Awards for Best Screenplay. He kept losing to Larry McMurtry, but that’s okay.  He co-wrote the teleplay for the Masters of Science Fiction episode, The Discarded, with Harlan Ellison, and is currently writing a sophisticated thriller, Tabloid, for Mick Jagger.
