The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle (1980) is a fictional "documentary" (a "mockumentary") film directed by Julien Temple about the seminal British punk band The Sex Pistols. It starred the band: singer Johnny Rotten as "The Collaborator", guitarist Steve Jones as "The Crook", bassist Sid Vicious as "The Gimmick", drummer Paul Cook as "The Tea-Maker", and the band's infamous manager, Malcolm McLaren, as "The Embezzler". It also features original bassist Glen Matlock, who appears briefly in some live scenes.
