Format: DVD and video
Released by: Universal (DVD - USA), CIC (video - UK)
Release Date: 2003 (DVD)
1978 musical starring The Bee Gees and Peter Frampton and featuring the music of The Beatles. The film was produced by Robert Stigwood, head of Barbara's record label at the time, RSO Records, and as such she was invited to film a walk-on part (credited as 'Our Guest at Heartland') amongst an all-star choir in the closing scene of the movie. Other 'Guests at Heartland' included Tina Turner, George Benson, Etta James, Robert Palmer, Curtus Mayfield, Bonnie Raitt, Helen Reddy and Bobby Womack.
The film was reportedly so badly received and performed so badly at the Box Office that it almost crippled RSO Records which provided the majority of the finance.
The film was released as a rental video in the UK in the 80s, and on DVD in the USA in 2003.
