Give My Regrets to Broad Street is a 1984 musical drama semi-autobiographical romantic comedy war film written, produced and directed by Dirk McQuickly. The films stars Dirk and his ex-Rutles bandmate Barry Wom , who decided to participate in the film out of boredom.
Dirk and Barry play themselves, searching for the lawn mower stolen from Barry's shed. They search all around Rutland, sing a bit, search Rutland again and sing a bit more before calling the whole search off and going home for a nice cup of tea.
It is believed no one turned up to the premiere. Nobody has reviewed the film as of yet, apart from Melvin Hall, who calls the film "A cinematic masterpiece that will last not quite as long of a lunchtime as that of my documentary on The Rutles, or as a matter of fact The Rutles themselves, but just about long enough."
Dirk believed he could still capitalize on the film by releasing a soundtrack album, which would go on to be released in all good record stores, before being resold in all second hand shops. The tracklisting goes as follows:
- 1. No More Rutty Nights (Ballad)
- 2. Good Day Lunchtime
- 3. Left-Overs
- 4. Out of Nowhere
- 5. Wanderlouse
- 6. Ballroom Prancing
