"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

This one's actually from the photocall for the Our World broadcast. Too bad Paul's got his back turned, but at least he's hiding Ringo's horrible haircut. :-P

Thanks!  I had the time tonight so I went through all of my "Likes" on Tumblr, which is a ridiculous amount…  but that's okay because there is a lot of Paul. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

No idea if this has appeared here before.

In 'Michael Palin's Diaries 1969 – 1970 The Monty Python Years' there is an entry for the 10th January 1975 when, after a private screening  at Apple's temporary headquarters in St James' (there were plans for MMT to support Life of Brian in the cinema's and this was the first time they had seen it since it initial airing in 1967), he wrote his thoughts on the film as such:

"Unfortunately it was not just an unjustly underrated work. There are some poor and rather messy sequences, it's very obvious when the group is miming to playback and there's a cutesie Top of The Pops-type look at Paul during 'Fool on the Hill', which is tacky and dated. However, it is extraordinary still, it is far too impressionistic and odd to be just outdated and many sequences are very successful. It's also quite long – nearly an hour, but all in all we were pleased. It will have great curiosity value and should be complimentary to the Python film because much of it looks like familiar Python territory."

 

"Well, probably we'll sell less records, less people'll go to see the film, we'll write less songs, and we'll all die of failure" (John Lennon 8/64)

I actually like it. I think if you watch it not as a movie, but just as something that's meant to be surreal and pointless, it's quite a fun movie

Sounds like a plan!

My bluray is on the way from Amazon UK as we write – can't wait.

 

Just got around to watching this for the first time ever and really enjoyed it.  Then again, it was a superbly restored bluray version, up on the projector, with a great dts soundtrack – so far from black and white on a tiny tinny telly.  I think it has aged rather well – and good work the restoration team.  The 'extras' on the disc are also quite good.

It's kind of interesting that on "Anthology' Paul was claiming it was not his baby, and on the bluray he is taking as much credit as he can get, a sign that the whole thing is viewed a bit more positively these days.

The movie was first screened 46 years ago today in the UK at 8:35pm on BBC 1. If you recreate the experience remember to set your tv picture to b&w.

I saw a film today, oh, boy…

 

Don't shoot me but, Magical Mystery Tour is a horrible film. I have to fast-forward it to the musical parts. I'm so badly impressed with it that I wish I didn't see it.

 

Opinions?

Yeah I see what you mean. I remember when it was impossible to find it,so when I saw it it was ooh BEATLES ! you know the feeling? anything BEATLES ,especially from that period. Now I see lots of stuff in it that is really funny,  like Ringo fighting with his aunt for example. And some not so funny , the victor spinetti and cow scene for example I'm sure there are some who will thing I have it backwards ,that's cool.it is also the first place we saw a video for  " I Am The Walrus " as some one has mentioned.
