THE NASTY RABBIT - Arch Hall & The Archers - "Main Title" (1964)
The only possible justification for making this film as far as we can figger is, Arch Hall Sr. must have seen "It's A Mad Mad Mad Mad World" the year before & thought he could capitalize on something oddball like it. It's a real shame & a pity too, because Arch & the Archers with the help of Pat & Lolly Vegas are looking and sounding better than ever. The band is tight & all the songs rock. The music is literally the only thing decent in the whole film. The rest of it will just want to make you tear your hair out. They just couldn't seem to distinguish between funny or dumb and stupid, & it's just not funny. "Invasion Of The Star Creatures" is 100 times funnier than this film, & I'm telling you, that's bad!! Seriously though, I don't care what anybody else says, for 1964, this band is Rockin' and it's a real shame they were reduced to mere background music, even if it is the best background music you're ever going to hear!
