Throughout production, "The U.S. vs. John Lennon" (2006) was in danger of never being released. Filmmakers David Leaf and John Scheinfeld struggled for over 15 years to produce this documentary, which focuses on a part of the music icon's life that is often overlooked - his outspoken political leanings both during and after the Vietnam War. Towards the end of the Beatles' career, Lennon' dissent against the U.S. government grew, which is expressed in both archival footage and interviews. This frustration culminated when the U.S. government attempted to deport the star for fear of the threat he posed to the nation's youth.
