Magical Mystery Tour Revisited

Produced at the peak of Beatlemania in 1967, Magical Mystery Tour is the least known of the various films starring the Beatles. It was never theatrically released or nationally broadcast on U.S. television, receiving only sporadic TV syndication in the 1980s. This documentary chronicles the behind-the-scenes story of the making of the film and provides context for 'the summer of love' era that set the scene for its production. This greatest Beatles story never told is packed with unseen footage and features contributions from Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Martin Scorsese, Peter Fonda and Terry Gilliam, among others. TVPG
