John made an appearance in Forrest Gump.
Here's how they did it followed by the clip. I do like how Forrest tells how John was shot; straight and simple to the point.

 

Oh what a coincidence, I just watched Forrest Gump yesterday! (for the first time ever) Loved the bit with John. I think it's brilliant and funny how they put him in all those bits like when he met Kennedy and all.

INCEPTION ALERT! I watched Forrest Gump yesterday as well (that's ever so slightly weird) But not for the first time it's one of my favourite films! I was also looking through a 3-year old thread on Forrest Gump yesterday and somebody said the book was better then the movie :O WHHAAAATTT?!? The movie is amazing- the book is very good. I believe it is the only book that I've ever read where the movie was better then the book

I have no idea but Yahoo Answers has. CGI, Green/Blue Screen and Blue Wrap around his legs to be removed by computer at a later date.

Would have been a lot cheaper and time saving surely to write into the contract the legs had to go as part of it all if you wanted the part. Hollywood wastes far too much money. ahdn_paul_01

I don't think we're witnessing the final generation of Beatles fans. I'm in my 20s, and I discovered them by accident at the age of about 6. If my generation listens to them when we have kids, I think that it's very possible for our kids to become fans too. I heard them on the radio and thought that the songs were good, then found "A Hard Day's Night" in our movie cabinet. After that, I had a few ups and downs in how much I listen to them, but they're still a huge part of my life. It just depends on how the current fans introduce them to the next generations. We can't force it without making some people hate them just because they don't want to be forced, but we can make it so they are introduced to various songs and the like and let them form their own opinions.

I tend to listen to the albums in full, particularly those from Rubber Soul onwards, as I absorb the music - and the experience of listening to the music - better that way. I have a few CD's, most of which are my parent's really, which are good to listen to if ever I want to listen to the Beatles when I'm out, although I don't very often because I don't think you really listen to it properly if you're in and out of the car, there's lots of traffic noise, etc. Since about a year ago, I've slowly began to collect original copies, and a few 70s re-issues, of the LP's. I have just Revolver left to add, and then my collection is complete. There's just something about listening to the music in the format that it was intended to be listened in that appeals to me, and the vinyl experience just seems so magical to me, too. There's nothing that can beat it.

The critics don't influence anything I do, and I definitely wouldn't be influenced to just listen to that particular time frame because of anything they say. Tbh, I haven't really noticed anything said, though that would only make me listen to the music from that period. Can you think of a particular example, SH?

The films played a vital part in my development as a Beatles fan. Through watching them (I watched AHDN, H and MMT within six weeks or so of me discovering the band), I discovered who they were as people and a bit about the effect they had on other people at the time. They went from being just any other band to a very important one in terms of well, everything, really.

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.
