Holy crap, that’s hard. There’s no way it’s something I’ve heard of, right? Is it Yellow Submarine?
That image you posted is a dead giveaway…
Then answer it, my friend!
Is the infamous Matt back from his extended vacation from rock trivia?
Well, I dont think any Beatles movies were released on Apple, I think they were all major companies. And I think the George Harrison stuff was Handmade films. I think it must be a Ringo vehicle, either Magic Christian or T.Rex’s Born to Boogie, cos I think Ringo was in it and possibly produced it..I think Elton was in it too! I’m going with Born to Boogie.
No one’s got it yet.
this is a good one, newms! have an awful feeling my initial premise might have been wrong…but well, I’ve had my shot!
Gotta tell you. I was sure it was Born To Boogie, too. Which came out a few years before Apple Film’s biggest bomb, the imprint-ending Son of Dracula (w/ Nilsson). I just can’t remember if Concert For Bangla Desh was an Apple Film or not. Seems like it SHOULD have been. I don’t remember any other major studio attached to it. George’s Handmade imprint, which Kev mentioned, actually came years later with The Rutles or Monty Python or Madonna or something.
So… if you’re not accepting Born To Boogie, I guess I’m guessing Bangla Desh.
ps: You can ignore my ‘dead giveaway’ post since it obviously wasn’t :o)
Never thought of Mystery Tour. Probaby because they were still on Capitol at the time. Good one.
