Happy Birthday John

    A Special News Feature from Beatles News  Saturday, August 19, 2017 

























The Beatles both as a group and as individuals have been an attractive topic for dramatists, filmmakers and playwrights for over three decades. There is something so compelling about the Beatles story. Their friend and one-time publicist Derek Taylor once described them as "the twentieth century's greatest romance".

That's why their story has inspired musical plays ("Beatlemania," "John, Paul, George, Ringo & Bert"); TV movies ("Birth Of The Beatles," "Two Of Us") and of course movies ("Backbeat"). There are several feature films starring the Beatles as a group and individually; films with musical scores drawn from the Beatles ("Across The Universe", "I Am Sam"); documentary films ("Beatles Anthology" "Imagine: John Lennon") and concert movies.

One way to celebrate John Lennon's 70th birthday this Fall is to have a John Lennon/Beatles film festival at home - buying or renting some of the scores of DVDs offering the John and Beatles on celluloid. This page lists some of the best films available.
