Storyline

Paul McCartney plays himself in another exaggerated "Day In the Life." Included are fictional scenes of the star preparing to film two videos, rehearsing in a loft, playing for the BBC, and even dreaming up a rather horrific nightmare. A loosely developed plot about missing master tapes ties all these events together Written by Ed Chen <echen@bcm.tmc.edu>

Trivia

This movie's title is a take on the title of the earlier picture Give My Regards to Broadway (1948). That movie was released in 1948, the digit reverse of this movie's release year, 1984 and a gap of thirty-six years. The title is also said to equally have come from London's Broad Street Railway Station. Paul McCartney once said regarding the film's title: "That station was like fate. It was waiting for us. I'd been searching in my mind for a title for a film and liked the idea of a parody on Give My Regards to Broadway (1948) - a New Yorkerish title that I could give a London twist to. When we filmed at Broad Street station, I knew I'd got it. It's a nice feeling when things happen naturally like that." See more »

I can still remember Paul McCartney being interviewed about this film shortly before its release. He sank a lot of his own money into the project and was bemoaning the fact that British investors didn't know a good thing when they saw one. Its runaway success would be his revenge on those who wouldn't fund the film. Anyway, it bombed and Macca waved goodbye to his money. I didn't see it in the cinema (nobody did), but saw it recently on TV. I watched because of the above tale. Was it a great work, as he had claimed? No. It is an excruciating piece of amateurish nonsense. Poorly acted and scripted, I can't think of a single redeeming feature.
