After watching A Hard Days Night, I was wondering what if beatles made a new movie after Help which had soundtracks of Either Rubber Soul or Revolver, maybe both?

So people what are your suggestion ?

What kind of movie it should, I would like to see a comedy or comedy love movie not Religious funny movie like help.

Soundtracks of which albums should be used, I think it should be Rubber Soul, 'cause Revolver has mature sounding songs.

An official Beatles movie of Pepper would probably be good... Especially of it had a scene in which Kite is playing and the song Zig described is happening on screen a-hard-days-night-george-10.

On topic, I think Revolver might be a slightly cooler, definitely trippier movie. But both albums would be good soundtracks. And the movie would need to be a comedy because its The Beatles.

There were plans drawn up for a tv special that would have the stories of the Pepper tracks dramatised. This was whilst MMT was in the works so it gradually fell out of favour and became to feel out of date. What book was that in?

 

Got one tho there is another has details of each song's idea. It's in John C. Winn's 'That Magic Feeling' (page 88). The video for ADITL was to be the first -

"The filming, under the supervision of NEMS's Tony Bramwell, was for a proposed TV special to tie in with the album in progress. Brian Epstein told the New Musical Express in the February 11 issue that "an outside film crew is working on location." Whether or not that was strictly true, the NME reported on April 1 that "no further progress has been made on on the Beatles TV spectacular since the one filming session earlier this year. The group has decided to shelf this project until finishing its LP, upon which the TV show will be based."

Things changed later in April when Paul came up with the idea for a Magical Mystery Tour film. By July 1, the NME stated that "the original plan to base the show on the 'Sgt. Pepper' LP has been scrapped because the album will no longer be topical by that time." Nonetheless, the idea lingered into the fall with a filming schedule for the other Sgt. Pepper numbers from October 21 to November 21 being proposed.   

Edit: Found it. A whole load of info is in Lewison's 'Complete Beatles Chronicle' along with a copy of the original Production Budget with details for each song. Not sure if i can find it online so if anyone can get it upped that would be cool.

Sadly, easier than you would think. It would have been one of those "signs of the times" that really wouldn't change much until after the Women's Lib movement was in full swing. While society did not necessarily condone domestic violence it was widely accepted that it existed and could be seen as a subject to joke about in various forms of media. One example was in the show The Honeymooners in the mid 50's. A running gag on that show was when Ralph would say to his wife, "One of these days, Alice - POW right in the kisser". That line would get laughs from the viewing audience then, and most likely lawsuits today. Fans of early 70's TV will know what I mean when I say that Maude would have flattened Walter after a line like that!

BOT: What a cool topic. It's fun to think about potential plot lines and what the general vibe of the films would be. In reality, though they may not have been very good. It was hard enough for Dick Lester to work with "all glazed eyes and giggling all the time" in HELP!. I don't know how they would have pulled it off once the pot turned earnestly into LSD and so forth.

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

I think the venting of TV anger via a non-serious threat of violence can still be funny if the performers and situation are right (and if the viewing audience had no doubt that the threat would never be followed up upon.) Funnier if the woman gives back as good as she gets. A friend of my uncle's once mock-threatened "Quiet, woman, or I'll bounce you off the wall!" after she mock-insulted her during a card game. "It'd be the last thing you ever did!" was her reply, and it got a laugh and shut him up temporarily. But he won the verbal matchup in the end, by thinking it over for a second and coming up with a perfectly-timed and delivered "It'd be worth it!" Big laughs all around. (They were about as happy a couple as I've seen, by the way.)

I spent a few seconds trying to imagine what possible kind of scenarios could be devised to accompany such strange songs as those on Revolver & Rubber Soul, then realized it doesn't really matter - none of their movie musical sequences ever tried to illustrate the songs lyrics, anyways.

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney

Attached is a capture of the Lewison entry on a proposed tv special based around the songs on Sgt. Pepper and one of the replica of the budget  (not film) - not sure how clear it will be, the book is better for it than the pdf.

Thanks mmm. I was intrigued by a 19 minute / 15 second version of ADITL and amused by the list of extras which included one milkman, one "loon" and one Arab sheik.

A concert movie would have been awesome of just those 2 LP's.  A little behind the scenes and backstage stuff as wells them boarding a train!  Whoops the train thing was done in A Hard Day's Night, as well as them coming to America from NY to Washington to perform their first US concert!

Oh well, I tried! a-hard-days-night-paul-11
