Not being anti Yoko here, but I’m pretty sure that John was the only Beatle who liked Yoko.  

I was watching Let It Be recently and my wife, who was half-watching, was utterly appalled what she saw as Yoko inserting herself into the Beatles creative process. I’m not nearly as monochromatic on Yoko. Clearly John wanted her close by him at all times – he was certainly capable of setting limits if he wanted to. The Beatles just weren’t John’s first priority at this point. He put his relationship first, which no one else in the band had ever done, and it can’t have helped the intra-group tension that formed the backdrop of the sessions. I’m just as sure that none of the others went to John and said “John, we love Yoko but it’s not helpful for her to be here.”

Communication was poor on all fronts and it wouldn’t have gotten better on its own in April…

In my opinion, Yoko is the best part of the movie. Just whenever it shows Yoko. And my second favorite part is when Paul goes into his self-important, long-winded speech about something and John is just staring blankly at him like “yeah, whatever, okay.” My third favorite part is watching Ringo grimace and frown at everything.

Has anyone noticed the Rocky cameo in the Let It Be movie while George is having a conversation with John.

I have noticed that, isn’t it the final scene before they play the two concerts where you can only see the back of George’s head.

Maybe you should try posting more.
