…mostly Ringo). Couldn’t tell you why; just that there’s something about him that my heart really likes.

  

We’re lucky we still have Ringo and he’s still full of his mellow aplomb and witty spirit (not to mention superb drumming and choices of music to perform and record).

  

That’s not wrong. He was also my very first love at the age of 5 (saw him in Shining Time Station and fell in love but forgot till now).

My heart has wi-fi and the password is Ringo Starr.

@Starrstruck, if you’ve never seen the 1969 movie “The Magic Christian” it’s a real treat for Ringo fans.  He co-stars with the great Peter Sellers in this bizarre comedy. The Google description sums it up:

Billionaire Sir Guy Grand (Peter Sellers) thinks nothing of throwing his endless stream of money away. He adopts a street person (Ringo Starr ), christens him Youngman Grand and sets about trying to illustrate to his new heir how virtually everyone in the world can be bought.

Hello, Starrstruck, welcome, have an apple! apple01

I recommend “Magic Christian” too! I remember* Ringo’s part as being solidly supportive of Sellers, engaging in mostly droll observations and the occasional bit of repartee, rather than having any huge scenes to himself, aside from having the opening scene, without dialogue, that can’t help but remind of Ringo’s waterside bits in AHDN . (*I’ve not seen it since…1995? maybe? And no more than 4-5 times total beginning in 85 or so….)

Movie’s no more than an escalating series of absurdist comic sketches draped over the simple premise, some funnier than others. (My two favourite bits are the consecutive art gallery and auction scenes, featuring John Cleese, who contributed to the script, alongside Graham Chapman)

Hello everyone!

I grew up on The Beatles, and my favourite song when I was little was All You Need Is Love , I wanted to hear it all the time. Now I’m 18 and I’ve recently gotten hyperfixated on The Beatles. My favourite album is easily Sgt Pepper ‘s!

I’m looking forward to chatting with you all here :]

Welcome to the forum, @perma60s!john-lennon-salute_gif

All You Need Is Love is a great song – and perfect for the Beatles’ performance on Our World in June 1967.

Hi everyone,

I am Kieron – a film-maker and Beatle fan (obvs!) from Dublin Ireland. I am delighted to be a member of this forum and want to kick off to see if anyone has any information on a particular story I heard about The Beatles when they were on one of their frantic American tours where they were stranded in a room in an American airport due to a bad storm preventing their flight from taking off. A scene evolved as the storm raged outside, where the boys finally had time to stop and ‘smell the roses’ concerning their rapid rise to enormous success. The discussion became quite heated and emotional apparently? By any chance is there anything more you can tell me about this scenario? Is it true? If so where was it? What year? Who was in the room? Who was arguing with who?

Any light that can be shed on this would be much appreciated.

Many thanks

Kieron
