    Okay, I'll start: DRESS INFORMAL

    The original film Let It Be premiered on May 13, 1970, in the USA and on May 20, 1970, in the UK:

    Does anybody know when this film started to screen for general audience?

    I would guess the next day after the premiere. Things were less complicated back then.

    Anyone could confirm this with a source would be very welcomed.

    I have posted this before:

    With regard to the fancy London film premiere, none of the Beatles attended. Other attending guests included Richard Lester, Mary Hopkin, Spike Milligan, Lulu, and EMI boss Sir Joseph Lockwood. Supposedly, several members of The Rolling Stones and Fleetwood Mac also attended (I do not know if this is true, or which members exactly).

    But the strangest guests who attended were Jane Asher and Cynthia Lennon. What the heck were they thinking?

    I can understand Jane; I think there was an affection there between the 2 that probably never went away. Plus she was a celebrity herself, so it probably just seemed like a normal thing for her to go to. Cynthia though.....can't say. I would think she would've still been in pretty heavy "hate" mode at that point.

    Certainly not in the Gaumont Liverpool - it's long demolished!

    oh wow.....

    I know in the Wingspan special that Paul drives up to the front of the Gaumont, but that was in 2001.

    Let’s hope this stays open. Would be very nice to know what we should avoid discussing.

    Okay:

    Do NOT mention the word "giddle".
    Do NOT mention that Phil Spector's overdubbed orchestrations ruined the whole concept of the album.
    Do NOT mention anything about Yoko eating George's digestive biscuits.
    Do NOT mention that Michael Lindsay-Hogg was in over his head.
    Do NOT mention "Commonwealth/White Power".
    Do NOT mention that John was too strung out to contribute anything of merit.
    Do NOT mention that Paul was way too bossy.
    Do NOT mention that George was a grump.
    Do NOT mention that all of the Fabs should have been required to shampoo their hair at least ONCE during January 1969.

    Other than that, discuss anything that you want. ;)

    That’s funny, 6 years earlier and the marquee for Beatle films was nearly identical

    challenge accepted, we could easily do a few thousand posts only from the two songs Ringo didn't finish during the sessions:D

    John and Yoko were away in Los Angeles at the time so she didn't have to worry about them showing up.

    What about Yoko's suggestion to John and Peter Sellers that shooting up was exercise?

    Maybe Paul invited her to annoy Yoko?

    I personally would like to see Picasso and Taking A Trip To Carolina included on the Let it Be 50 box set!
     
  25. Hmm, are there more versions of these songs?
    Otherwise, there's not much difference between both songs except the few lyrics Ringo sang. And 'Carolina' was on that Let It Be... Naked bonus disc already.^^
