Melvin Hall is a 20th and 21st century interviewer, most popular for his documentaries on The Rutles. His first documentary, All You Need Is Cash, is often attributed to re-minding the world of the Rutles and making them popular again. He has become notorious for his constant desire to clarify himself in his documentaries.
Melvin Hall was born on 29 March 1949. His parents were Red Barron and Anora Hall. He lived a quiet and normal life, his father was an accountant and his mother was not, just as a life should be. During Christmas 1970 he recieved his first white dress coat and tie, and he recieved his first pair of glasses next year.
He was a good child, until he first heard The Rutles in 1963, at wich point he grew more ambiguous and rebellious against his parents. He started a small band entitled Do Not Adjust Your Cage. They began playing in small joints and smaller pants (In imitation of the Rutles).
It was through this practice of music that Melvin met his mentor, Jimmy Climmer. In the early 1950s, Jimmy had been a popular musician, using the stage name "The Wallsey Warbler." Later in his career, however, he gave up the occupation for a job in interviewing. Melvin, amazed about the stories that Jim told of people that he had interviewed that knew the Rutles, decided to give up the music buisness for a chance to someday meet the Rutles, and began working for an interviewing scholarship.
Melvin began work at Pokembroke College, where he learned all the skills needed to interview individuals. He graduated in 1970, the same year the Rutles split up. He was devastated, yet still believed that one day he would meet the Rutles. In an attempt to put them back not the people's hearts, Melvin began to create a documentary on the Rutles.
