The Brian Epstein Story
15 October 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Until the assassination of John Lennon by the deranged Mark David Chapman in December 1980, the greatest tragedy in the story of the Beatles was the death of their manager Brian Epstein in August 1967 aged only 32.

This documentary covers the Epstein story going as far as any film can go towards showing that his death was not suicide but one of those unfortunate miscalculations that often happen with people who are hooked on drugs, be they prescription or otherwise.

Epstein failed at everything from school to the army - National Service as it was then. It was only when his father set him up with a record store inside the family business that he found his forte. He was a key figure in not only in the career of the Beatles but in the Mersey Beat story generally, that massive outburst of musical talent that like others before and since took the world by storm. He also managed Cilla Black.

This film includes contributions from many people who knew Epstein including most significantly Paul McCartney, who was interviewed for it, and John Lennon, who of course appears only in archive footage.

(The above is a review of the entire two part documentary).
