From The Examiner:

Author says Beatles talked doing films with Zeffirelli, Godard, McGoohan

In a new BBC Radio 4 Beatles radio special, “Celluloid Beatles,” that premiered Sept. 14 and is available online for a week, Beatles historian and author Mark Lewisohn reveals the Beatles considered making films with directors Franco Zeffirelli, Jean-Luc Godard and Patrick McGoohan, star of the cult favorite TV series, “The Prisoner.”

 

More at the link. We know that Paul was approached for Zeffirelli's "Romeo and Juliet," but he declined. I think it was in MYFN that he talked about it.

The sad Jackie Lomax news is also over in the Impossible to Derail thread (apologies if that's in the wrong place, I generally post passings like this in there. There is another more personal thread that is more for, how best to write it, remembering people folks here were close to like friends, family etc (that reads wrong)).

I admit I almost never visit that Impossible to Derail thread. I'd be on the board all day. :-)

I'm not digging it, for it looks like a bunch of neon lights from the 80's. Sticking to black & white. a-hard-days-night-george-10
