Eat The Document is a documentary of Bob Dylan's 1966 tour of the United Kingdom and Ireland with the Hawks. It was shot under Dylan's direction by D. A. Pennebaker, whose groundbreaking documentary Dont Look Back [sic] chronicled Dylan's 1965 British tour. The film was originally commissioned for the ABC television series ABC Stage 67. Though shooting had completed for the film, Dylan's July 1966 motorcycle accident delayed the editing process. Once well enough to work again, Dylan edited the film himself. ABC rejected the film as incomprehensible for a mainstream audience.

The John Lennon Limousine Scene features a clearly drug and alcohol influenced Dylan in the back of a limo with John Lennon on May 27, 1966. As Dylan starts to talk some nonsense (like implying the Thames River, not the English Channel, prevented Hitler from conquering Britain) and shows signs of fatigue and withdrawal, Lennon urges him to get a grip on himself: "Do you suffer from sore eyes, groovy forehead, or curly hair? Take Zimdawn!... Come, come, boy, it's only a film. Pull yourself together." Lennon would later recall in an interview with Rolling Stone that he and Dylan were "both in shades, and both on fucking junk, and all these freaks around us... I was nervous as shit. I was on his territory, that's why I was so nervous."
