The Rutles: All You Need Is Cash (1978) is a mockumentary that mimics The Beatles career. This British band started as fictional, but due to their popularity, they became a real band. The Rutles belonged to the “Rutland Weekend Television” show. “I think it was the trousers” can be credited to the 1978 film. The phrase was a joke on how tight British trousers were to the American people or audience. The main members of the band include John Halsey, Ken Thornton, Phil Jackson and David Catlin-Birch.
