Probably the finest rock and roll concert film ever, "The Last Waltz" celebrates the final performance by The Band. The show took place on Thanksgiving Day in 1976, at San Francisco's Winterland Arena -- where the group had given their very first concert as "The Band". Numerous guests appear to help the group make this farewell unforgettable. They include: Bob Dylan, Dr. John, Neil Diamond, Eric Clapton, Emmylou Harris, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Muddy Waters, Keith Richards, Ron Wood, Neil Young Ringo Starr, Paul Butterfield, Ronnie Hawkins and the Staples. Over 5000 fans attended... and director Martin Scorsese beautifully captures every moment.
