  • A typically Beatlesque film (i.e. atypical) originally produced for television, this short film was intended to be an off-the-wall road movie with the Beatles and three dozen or so friends on a psychedelic bus. Shot with only a vague script and only bare outlines of scenes, the movie was meant to document a trip to the seaside resort town of Blackpool, England. Made in September of 1967, The Beatles' brilliant rock album is transformed into colorful and energetic images. The film also contains the only live version of John Lennon's "I Am the Walrus." Third of the Beatles films to include Victor Spinetti, famous for his mohair sweater wearing role as the television director in A Hard Day's Night and as the determined scientist with the laser in Help! The movie was originally shown on BBC TV on December 26, 1967 inexplicably in black and white.

    Q (8/89) - Included in Q Magazine's "Best Psychedelic Albums of All Time" issue.
    Q (8/99, p.138) - "...the weirdest beast in the entire Beatles catalogue....As good an indicator as any that all the madness was about to end. It had to."
    Paste (magazine) (p.60) - "With much better material and no forced concept to weigh down the proceedings, Martin's production work shines, particularly on the Lennon tracks."
