Having just seen the classic 1957 movie, Bridge Over The River Kwai, I can't help but wonder if John Lennon watched this film sometime around 1966-67. The reason I say this is because a) William (Billy) Holden plays the part of a Major SHEERS, (Billy Shears, anyone), also, there is a scene where Holden is on the beach at Ceylon with a pretty nurse, he says to her, I've had the Tranquilisers, I've had the Epidema, when All I Need Is Love! The Nurse replies, It's True, All You Need Is Love.

 It has been my experience of watching programmes and films from the 50's/60's, and wondering if these programmes/films had any influence on some of Lennon's work. I believe John was famous for having an interest in watching all sorts of TV/Films. I sometimes wonder if the 1967 made version of Alice In Wonderland had any influence on certain songs of that period. There are various references that might later be seen in Beatles lyrics., or perhaps the film merely echoed the times???
