You could really tell how much Olivia loved him.  Her final speech at the end is what really got me.

I don't need to own a copy of this (altho I've already own about a dozen Scorsese flicks on dvd, lol) but I'm really glad I was able to catch it earlier in the year, thanks to my mother's fancy cable box. (She really enjoyed it too.) So many unforgettable moments, some happy (seeing George sometime in the '70s, watching – and delightedly laughing at! – a clip of himself and the boys performing a decade earlier), some sad (that notorious bit with Ringo.)

I like black music, disco music. I like the disco music that's out now - John Lennon, 1975

I am currently re-reading I, Me, Mine (the republished edition from 2002). I had forgotten just how touching Olivia's introduction in that book is.

Everyone should be loved by someone that much.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

Can buy Joe love! If you're going to buy that song, album, or T-shirt anyway; please consider using these links to support the Beatles Bible: Amazon | iTunes

The first time I watched it I was barely able to hold back the tears…until Ringo's final recollection of George at the end. Then, it all came pouring out.

Ringo earned my undying love and devotion with that interview (not that he didn't have it already). It was just so lovely and open and generous of him to share that with us, not to mention a beautiful tribute to George. With a classic twist of bittersweet humor at the end -- "It's like Barbara f***ing Walters in here!" Peace and love, Ringo.

Agreed – that part had me teary-eyed.  Ringo always seems to wear his heart on his sleeve and seems to 'forgive and forget' some of the worst behaviour from his mates.

That's what love is. Good on you Ringo. Too many folk hold onto small trivialities and inane disagreements and never speak for years.

Sorry to bring back this old topic but I watched this doc again last night. It's great all the way through but the part that always catches my interest the most (naturally) is the part where Scorsese seems to have access to Ringo's home movies of the reunion in the 90s and then there is pretty good footage of Paul and George doing a harmony in the studios from that time to (whether this came from Ringo or from another film job, I'm not sure).

My question is, has there ever been much discussion on this? How did Scorsese gain access to this material? And if Scorsese could, is there any chance that more could ever come out? Has Ringo ever talked about it? I would love to see as much of this reunion stuff as possible.
