Directed by: Martin Scorsese
Starring: Muddy Waters, Neil Young, Robbie Robertson, Van Morrison
Genres: Documentary, Music
Continuity mistake: Throughout the whole film you can see that Rick Danko's bass playing has been completely redone. What he's playing and what you hear are completely different things.
Trivia: Eric Clapton's guitar strap accidentally came undone while he performed the opening of "Further On Up the Road." To give Clapton time to fix it, Robbie Robertson improvised a guitar solo.
Question: Why did Martin Scorsese wait two years to release the film?
Chosen answer: The show was recorded on Thanksgiving, 1976. The movie was released April 26, 1978, 17 months later closer to 1.5 years. The movie was not just the straight footage of the one concert, it includes various interviews, studio sessions, etc. filmed at different times. It had to be edited, produced, distribution had to be arranged. Then a release date was picked probably based on some marketing scheme - what other movies were being released around that time, etc. 17 months is not at all an unusual delay for this process.
