Mark, films for 500:

During the performance of You’re Going To Lose That Girl in Help !, there are 2 other people in the room besides The Beatles, who are those 2 people?

Ron Nasty, instrumentation for 200:

According to George Martin’s handwritten notes, who played acoustic guitar on Another Girl ?

Done, and edited my post in response to you.

Not sure it’ll do any good though. We can’t blank all the posts after, and the conversation after I think gives it away.

What just went on????

Here’s my attempt at the prove me wrong: Jimi Hendrix wasn’t popular (or published…) in 1966, so couldn’t have influenced Paul’s solo.

I didn’t realise it was a question, @The Hole Got Fixed, and thought DO had just decided to throw in fun facts.

My jaw dropped, and I thoroughly demolished the statement with dates and everything, which is why I suggested he make it more clear in the future.

Oh, by the way, I can tell you you’re right.

@Dark Overlord I would say your question to me is harder than 200 as the GM notes for the Help ! are relatively unknown.

However, George on Jumbo Gibson.

Mal, you’re correct. As for you Ron Nasty, you’re not just correct, i’m going to give you 300 extra bonus points because you mentioned the instrument model despite not being asked to and it was a rather hard question for 200, especially considering that most sources mislabel the acoustic guitar of Another Girl part as John instead of George.

Mal moves 4 spaces to important events.

Ron Nasty moves 2 spaces to books.

Hopefully this helps you out, here’s a picture:

Let’s just say that the 2 people in the window were very close to The Beatles.

I’ll take a 200 points question next, please.

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

I’m pretty sure they’re Mal and Neil, although @Ron Nasty or anybody else correct me if i’m wrong.

Doesn’t look to be Mal or Neil, although I see why you think that they are. Let’s get some other opinions on identifying them. Its a good question nonetheless.

I wouldn’t mind. But now i’m curious who’s in the booth. I’ve been checking IMDb but I’m not coming up with anything.

The big blonde guy looks a lot like Mal.

@Dark Overlord @sir walter raleigh

Apologies, have been rather busy most of the day working on something for someone.

Mal appears in the film only as the channel swimmer, while Neil isn’t in it.

The actor that looks a little like Mal is Allan Mitchell:

while the other actor is Roy Spencer (seen here three years later in Doctor Who):

Roy-Spencer.jpgImage Enlarger

Both are uncredited roles in the film, and listed respectively by IMDb as Engineer and Technician (myself I would list them as Producer and Engineer).

Afraid you’re wrong, DO.
