The Rickenbacker 330 guitars played by Stephen MacKenna as John Lennon are actually Japanese-made copies. The headstocks are longer than a real Rickenbacker and the pickups and tailpieces differ. See more »
At the beginning of the movie when the Beatles audition for a club, John Lennon says they'll be playing Dizzy Miss Lizzy in the key of E, but when they play, its in the key of B flat. See more »
In my Opinion this is one of the better films about the Beatles. I know some arty types prefer Backbeat but I feel that this movie captures the Beatles more accurately. I don't mean everything about the film is accurate but they capture the personality, talent and spirit of four young Liverpool lads who became the Beatles.
Stephen MacKenna is outstanding as John and the other actors do passable impersonations of the others. Brian Jameson is good as Brian Epstein and Nigel Havers is brilliant as George Martin.
On stage they look and act like the Beatles and there is enough music to keep fans happy, remembering that this is the early days before they hit it really big.
So for genuine Beatles fans this is a movie well worth seeing.
