What's Happening: The Beatles in the USA
NR, 55 min. Directed by Albert And David Maysles.
REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Thu., Feb. 10, 2000
The Maysles' cameras document the Beatles' crazy first week in America, from the landing at Idlewild to the Ed Sullivan Show debut and their journey down the East Coast. These filmmaking brothers would end the decade by capturing the mayhem at Altamont in their documentary Gimme Shelter. This is where it all began. The Texas Documentary Tour is co-sponsored by the Austin Film Society, the UT Department of RTF, The Austin Chronicle, KLRU-TV, and SXSW Film.
