The Beatles Receive Their MBE's
23 June 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The fourth episode of The Beatles Anthology covers the period August 1964 to August 1965 - which covers their first major U.S. tour during summer and making their next film "Help".It also includes their experience meeting Bob Dylan,the recording of their albums such Beatles For Sale and Help,the pressures the band experienced from touring and their unexpected knighthood or reception of MBE's (Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) from Queen Elizabeth II.

At this point of the documentary,the on-going Beatlemania has definitely provided both positive and negative effects on the band.We get to see them go around the world particularly the U.S and see their continuing rise in popularity into greater heights that are beyond what their other fellow rock and roll bands are experiencing.The records are continuing sell and their made a follow up film from the successful "A Hard Day's Night" which is entitled "Help!".This time,the film is in color.Several footage were shown such as their songs: Another Girl,The Night Before,You're Going to Lose That Girl,You've Got to Hide Your Love Away and Help!.Added to that two versions of the song "Ticket To Ride" was shown.They also related their experience of meeting a fellow legend Bob Dylan and the respect they have for him.Finally,the footage of the Beatles going to the Buckingham Palace was shown when they received their MBE's from the Queen.

Just like the third episode,a lot of the events presented here are probably not unknown to the so-called Beatlemaniacs.They definitely have seen the movie "Help!" and are too familiar with the songs contained in both the movie and the album as well.What is really worth of notice here is the pressures they experience during this part of their history and how probably the song "Help!" was conceived.Also,their respect for Dylan was also worth watching and how George grew into becoming a solid songwriter.And the most worthy of mention here is the respect they unexpectedly got from Buckingham Palace when they got their MBE's. While I must say that the Queen of England took a risk since she gave it early in their careers,she definitely made the right choice considering that the band has become popular for many years to come and have influenced the music industry greatly which no one band can ever deny.
