John & Yoko and the Montreal "bed-in"
April 07, 2010
In May 1969, John Lennon and Yoko Ono held their famous week-long
"Bed-In for Peace" at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel in Montreal - an
event that culminated in the recording of the enduring protest anthem
"Give Peace a Chance."
This fascinating 2005 documentary by Canadian director Paul McGrath
looks back at an unforgettable moment in cultural history. The
hour-long film includes seldom-seen archival footage featuring
Sixties celebrities such as Timothy Leary, Tom Smothers and Petula
Clark, as well as an extensive interview with Yoko Ono.
