Can you believe it? A documentary commemorating "Beatlemania" which doesn't contain The Kings of British Pop, The Beatles, performing even one of their #1 songs? Yes. Very odd, indeed._____ Through vintage footage (from between the years 1962 - 1966), which includes rare interviews, newsreels, press conferences and TV appearances, this often insightful documentary DVD is truly a celebration of "Beatlemania" at the height of its hilarious hysteria._____ This historical, rock'n'roll presentation gives the viewer a candid look at The Fab Four detailing their (sometimes humorous) thoughts on fame, their music, the screaming fans and the media's demented fascination with their mop-top hairstyles._____ Not only does "The Beatle Explosion" highlight The Beatles' first trip to America, as well as contain behind-the-scenes footage from the filming of "A Hard Day's Night", but, the viewer is also treated to seeing what resulted when John Lennon publicly stated that "The Beatles are greater than God"._____ Filmed in b&w, "The Beatles Explosion" had a running time of 102 minutes.
