How The Beatles Are Reconquering Hollywood

It Was 50 Years Ago Today - How The Beatles Are Reconquering Hollywood

Jul 13, 2018


STILL COURTESY OF ABRAMORAMA

It all started on July 6, 1964 at the London Pavilion when the The Beatles’ big screen debut, A Hard Day’s Night, held its gala premiere. When the shrieks and screams finally ended that evening, The Fab Four had officially crossed the threshold from music giants to movie stars. The film went on to gross over $11 million worldwide by the end of the 1960s (roughly $85 million in 2018 dollars) and that figure doesn’t account for numerous re-releases throughout the years.

Despite the overwhelming success of that first Beatles film it’s a safe guess that no one in attendance that July evening could have predicted that John, Paul, George, and Ringo would still be making an impact on the movie business more than fifty years later.

Fast forward to this past weekend when a 4K restored version of The Beatles’ 1968 animated film Yellow Submarine hit select theaters to celebrate the film’s 50th anniversary. The movie’s return to the big screen was an instant success as Beatles fans of all ages and demographics either took a jaunt down memory lane or experienced the psychedelic Fab Four and the evil Blue Meanies for the first time.


While many theater owners crossed their collective fingers that this nostalgia trip would be a success, they weren’t quite ready for sold out auditoriums and the communal atmosphere in the 200 screens that distributor Abramorama selected for opening weekend. Indeed, grosses for the film were higher in many of those 200 cinemas than for any of the films from the Hollywood studios that were playing in the complex. A point to remember is these grosses came from only one show.

Exhibitors reported impromptu audience sing-alongs, especially during the film's closing track, All Together Now, which features the only on-screen appearance by the band. The distributor is planning an expansion of the film throughout August and is also mapping out plans for a full-fledged sing-along version later in the year. That announcement is certain to delight hardcore Beatlemaniacs, including the man who attended one of the screenings in the UK over the weekend dressed in a Blue Meanie outfit.

This is the third time that Abramorama has worked with The Beatles’ Apple Corp and Universal Music on film projects focusing on the group. In addition to a re-release of 2003’s Concert For George, the distributor enjoyed Stateside success with 2016’s Eight Days A Week: The Touring Years.

Abramorama President Richard Abramowitz explains the company's partnership with The Beatles by saying:

" When we’re charged with marketing and distributing one of their films, we are  highly selective in choosing the venues in order to ensure the best possible  experience. It seems somehow discordant to refer to The Beatles as a ‘brand’ because our connection to them is so elemental. In some sense, though, they really are one of the best brands in the world. Our job, I would almost call it a mission, is to be respectful of that at all times, in all ways.


While one-night-only events such as Yellow Submarine, along with Event Cinema programming from companies like Fathom Events, aren’t a huge percentage of theater owners’ box office revenue they do fill an important void by providing quality entertainment during off times (generally matinees and weeknights) where studio titles are playing to well below capacity. When, as mentioned earlier, revenue from screenings like Yellow Submarine are the highest of the day for cinema owners, that results in a significant contribution to their bottom lines.

Why do The Beatles remain relevant 50 years later? Far from settling into comfortable retirement somewhere in the Swiss Alps, the two living band members are still recording and touring. Ringo Starr is midway through his latest All Starr Band Tour and Paul McCartney’s tour in support of his first new album in five years kicks off September 16th in Quebec City. His recent appearance on James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke was an internet sensation, garnering nearly 27 million views on YouTube .

The fact that the band has remained as vibrant and important as they were 50 years ago is not only a testament to the music but also to the desire of the remaining members to remain connected with their fans. That respect for The Beatles’ still loyal legion of followers translates to every medium the band is involved with. There will even be a graphic novel based on the movie this fall.

If the success of this past week’s Yellow Submarine is any bellwether, fans will look for The Fab Four back on the big screen with updated 4K restorations of the band’s other two feature films, Help and Let It Be, and hope it won't be a long and winding road back to the big screen for those movies.

Yellow Submarine Is the Best Beatles Movie
by Leilani Polk
Jul 13, 2018

As we live a life of ease, every one of us has all we need
"As we live a life of ease, every one of us has all we need"

Milestones call for celebration—or in the case of Yellow Submarine, which has its 50th anniversary this month, a good ol’ fashioned restoration.

The animated musical fantasy—ostensibly made for children, but with surrealistic, psychedelic animations by George Dunning, appealing to adults of both the square and acid-eating varieties—was inspired by the 1966 Beatles song of the same name, and culls select other tracks from that seminal rock band’s catalog to soundtrack and illustrate its story: A group of musicians (Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band) embarks on an underwater adventure through wildly surreal and tripped-out seascapes to save their Pepperland paradise from the music-hating Blue Meanies who’ve invaded and drained all the love, peace, and color from the place.

Other than the film’s use of their likenesses (and their music), the Beatles were barely involved in its making; the project fulfilled a three-film contract to United Artists, and their sole live-action cameo in the final scene satisfied their contractual obligation to actually appear in the film. But it’s arguably the best of all the Beatles films, and seeing a thoroughly remastered (i.e., more remastered than the 2012 remaster) version on the big screen will be a rare treat. It plays at SIFF Cinema Egyptian tonight through July 23.

Here's a trailer for the restored film—looks pretty pristine, right?







John Lennon during the flight to Bahamas in 1965 : ‘Well, err, we all got stoned’














 FEBRUARY 22 1965 : The Beatles fly to the Bahamas to begin filming location scenes for their second movie, "Help!"

‘Well, err, we all got stoned’
By Paul Fraser
Jul 14 2018

Picture the scene...

1964.

You’re on a BOAC flight to the Bahamas.

Of course, this being the 1960s, you’re allowed to smoke on board.

But there’s a bit of a funny smell.


Their brains may have been impaired but their writing skills certainly weren't - look at the cracker from Ringo!

It seems to be coming from a few seats over, where a group of mop-haired Liverpudlians are talking absolute nonsense.

The Beatles’ now legendary flight to the Bahamas marked the start of their transition from teen idols into something a little more experimental.

They were on their way to film classic movie Help!

John Lennon on the set of Help 1965


On their arrival, Lennon was asked how they passed the time during the flight.

His answer?

“Well, err, we all got stoned”.

A signed menu from the flight is expected to sell for £5,000-6,000 ($6,667-8,000) at Spink on July 24-25.

I have a piece of Beatles memorabilia I think you may like.

Thanks for reading,

George Harrison Paul McCartney Hey Jude ideas

The comments are taken from a new book Credit: Michael Ochs Archives/Getty Images


The second volume ‘Sound Pictures: The Life of Beatles Producer George Martin — The Later Years, 1966 – 2016’ is released on September 4 and is written by author Kenneth Womack.

In a new excerpt from the book, Womack details Martin coming in on the second day of the ‘Hey Jude’ recording at Abbey Road.

“‘Hey Jude’ was quickly taking shape as a Beatles song of inordinate length,” it reads. “In the case of ‘Hey Jude,’” George later recalled, “when we were recording the track, I thought that we had made it too long. It was very much a Paul song, and I couldn’t understand what he was on about by just going round and round the same thing. And of course, it does become hypnotic.”




It’s later revealed that Paul McCartney snubbed George Harrison’s suggestion that the lead guitar echo McCartney’s lyrics in a call-and-response style.

“Personally, I’d found that for the last couple of albums,” Harrison later observed, “the freedom to be able to play as a musician was being curtailed, mainly by Paul.” In situations such as the “Hey Jude” session, said Harrison, “Paul had fixed an idea in his brain as to how to record one of his songs. He wasn’t open to anybody else’s suggestions,” the book reads. You can read the full excerpt here.



Earlier this week, Pattie Boyd was interviewed by Taylor Swift about being married to George Harrison during the height of Beatlemania.

“I got to see the Beatles play at a theater in London, and George told me that I should leave with my friends before the last number,” she told Swift in the Harper’s Bazarre feature. “So before the last song, we got up from our seats and walked toward the nearest exit door, and there were these girls behind me. They followed us out, and they were kicking me and pulling my hair and pushing us all the way down this long passageway.”

How Beatles Producer George Martin Recorded ‘Hey Jude’ to Be ‘Hypnotic’ (Exclusive Excerpt)
"I actually said ‘You can’t make a single that long.’ I was shouted down by the boys — not for the first time in my life."
By VARIETY STAFF
JULY 12, 2018

The Beatles 1967

“Sound Pictures: The Life of Beatles Producer George Martin — The Later Years, 1966 – 2016” (Chicago Review Press) is author Kenneth Womack’s concluding book of his two-volume biography of the life of Sir George Martin. The second volume looks at Martin’s work with the Beatles in their later years with the albums that included “Revolver,” “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” “The Beatles (The White Album)” and “Abbey Road,” and on through his work after the Beatles with Paul McCartney, Jeff Beck, America, Cheap Trick and America. The book hits the streets Sept. 4. This excerpt looks at the making of the Beatles’ single “Hey Jude.” — Steve Marinucci

For Martin and the Beatles, the studio was dark the next day, as Lennon and McCartney worked at the latter’s Cavendish Avenue home, putting the finishing touches on a new composition titled “Hey Jude.” The bandmates and their producer may have had their trials and tribulations during the summer of 1968, but as Ringo observed years later, nothing excited the group more than working on a great new track. Inspired by Paul’s recent visit with John’s son Julian, “Hey Jude” had single written all over it. On Monday, July 29, with Martin taking a rare night off, McCartney debuted the song in Studio 2 with Ken Scott and new tape operator John Smith working up in the booth. The band recorded six takes of the song during the ensuing rehearsal, with McCartney on piano and lead vocals and Lennon’s acoustic guitar, Harrison’s electric guitar, and Starr’s drums. By the time that Martin joined them at Abbey Road the next evening, “Hey Jude” was quickly taking shape as a Beatles song of inordinate length.

“In the case of ‘Hey Jude,’” George later recalled, “when we were recording the track, I thought that we had made it too long. It was very much a Paul song, and I couldn’t understand what he was on about by just going round and round the same thing. And of course, it does become hypnotic.” But even still, George could see the song’s obvious hit-making potential. The session itself was a muddled affair in spite of the Lennon-McCartney masterwork unfolding in Studio 2. For one thing, there was a film crew present from the National Music Council. They were on hand to film the Beatles for a documentary to be titled Music! As Ken Scott later recalled, “The film crew was supposed to work in such a way that no one would realize they were there, but of course they were getting in everyone’s way and everyone was getting uptight about it.” In the surviving footage, Harrison can be seen up in the booth with Martin and Scott. The quiet Beatle had sought refuge in the control room after McCartney rebuffed his suggestion that his lead guitar part echo McCartney’s lyrics in a call-and-response fashion. For his part, Harrison felt the sting of McCartney’s rejection.

“Personally, I’d found that for the last couple of albums,” Harrison later observed, “the freedom to be able to play as a musician was being curtailed, mainly by Paul.” In situations such as the “Hey Jude” session, said Harrison, “Paul had fixed an idea in his brain as to how to record one of his songs. He wasn’t open to anybody else’s suggestions.” When the session came to an end in the wee hours of the morning, Martin took home a rough stereo mix of “Hey Jude” for the purposes of scoring an orchestral arrangement. By this point, Martin had booked a half orchestra for an August 1 session at Trident Studios, a brand-new, five-month-old facility in London’s St. Anne’s Court.

On the evening of Wednesday, July 31, Martin and the Beatles acclimated themselves to Trident. Working outside of EMI Studios meant that Ken Scott was unable to participate. Barry Sheffield, one of Trident’s co-owners, worked the boards instead. With the tape running, the bandmates remade “Hey Jude” and began working on a carefully layered basic rhythm track featuring McCartney playing the studio’s magnificent Bechstein grand piano and singing a guide vocal, Harrison on electric guitar, Lennon playing his Jumbo acoustic, and Starr on drums. After recording four takes, Martin and the bandmates selected take one as the best before calling it a night. When they reconvened the next afternoon at Trident, the Beatles superimposed a number of overdubs to “Hey Jude,” including McCartney’s lead vocal and bass part, as well as three-part backing vocals from Lennon, McCartney, and Harrison. At that point, they were joined by Martin’s thirty-six-piece orchestra, with the players including ten violinists, three violas, three cellists, two flautists, a bassoon, a contra bassoon, two clarinets, a contrabass clarinet, four trumpets, four trombones, two horns, two string basses, and a percussionist.

By this juncture, Martin had come to see his score as an antidote to the song’s extraordinary length, especially given the lengthy play-out chorus that concludes it. As George later recalled, “I realized that by putting an orchestra on you could add lots of weight to the riff by counter chords on the bottom end and bringing in trombones, and strings, and so on until it became a really big tumultuous thing. So that was my only real contribution to that. The real credit goes to Paul for thinking up the song in the first place, and the riff, and the way it extended.” But still, “even when we’d finished, I was terrified because it was so darn long.”

Image result for Sound Pictures: The Life of Beatles Producer George Martin — The Later Years, 1966 – 2016

With the orchestra tuned up and ready to play, Martin recorded the session players during an evening session from eight to eleven that night. For the most part, the musicians good-naturedly joined in; as with previous Beatles session players, they were keen on gaining the bragging rights associated with one of the Fab Four’s recordings. But better still, the chance to provide backing vocals on “Hey Jude” doubled their session fees. However, not everyone was thrilled at the opportunity, with one of the players walking out of Trident in a huff, saying, “I’m not going to clap my hands and sing Paul McCartney’s bloody song!”

Over the next several days, George conducted mono and stereo mixing sessions for “Hey Jude” at Trident, with Barry Sheffield assisting. As Martin worked to adjust the track to the Beatles’ specifications, their producer repeated his concerns about the song’s length, which clocked in at more than seven minutes. The bandmates immediately countered with the example of Richard Harris’s “MacArthur Park,” which had notched a top-five US and UK hit that June.

Image result for Sound Pictures: The Life of Beatles Producer George Martin — The Later Years, 1966 – 2016

But George remained unconvinced, given that “Hey Jude” had a substantial length, for a Beatles track at least, of seven minutes and eleven seconds. “It was a long song,” he later observed. “In fact, after I timed it, I actually said ‘You can’t make a single that long.’ I was shouted down by the boys—not for the first time in my life—and John asked, ‘Why not?’ I couldn’t think of a good answer, really, except the pathetic one that disc jockeys wouldn’t play it.” And that’s when John played his trump card: “They will if it’s us,” he told the producer.

There was also the matter of manufacturing a 45 rpm record with the appropriate fidelity for a song of such length. Clearly, the folks at Harris’s label—ABC Records’ Dunhill subsidiary—had managed to handle the unusual length posed by “MacArthur Park.” But for his part, McCartney wasn’t worried. EMI’s technical team had already overcome a number of manufacturing challenges in the past. “It was longer than any single had been,” Paul observed, “but we had a good bunch of engineers. We asked how long a 45 could be. They said that four minutes was about all you could squeeze into the grooves before it seriously started to lose volume and everyone had to turn the sound up. But they did some very clever stuff, squeezing the bit that didn’t have to be loud, then allowing the rest more room. Somehow, they got seven minutes on there, which was quite an engineering feat.”
