Barnes, London, England [May 2009]
Since he had grown up in Liverpool and attended school with John Lennon, McGough was brought in to do some uncredited script doctoring on Yellow Submarine (1968), to make the dialogue more 'scouse' (Liverpudlian), after complaints that most of it was too 'American' because most of the writers up to that point were in fact from the U.S. and Canada.
