The woolly sweater worn by the TV director (Victor Spinetti) was his own. The sweater was given to him as a gift and later given to a fan club that had asked him for it. See more »

In the television show sequence, the song "You Can't Do That" was cut from the original film. In the 30th anniversary special on the making of the film, the cut scene featuring the song is shown after the special. See more »
Classic cinema verite has the Fab Four going hither and thither, accompanied by Paul's "very clean" grandfather John (Wilfrid Brambell). Naturally, it wouldn't be a Beatles movie without their music. And the music always fits the scene (unlike so many musicals). My favorite scene was on the train where John, Paul, George and Ringo meet a middle-aged man, and...well, let's just say that it did a really funny job showing the generation gap. In short, you can always count on the Beatles to do something great, as every one of their songs showed. They may have had a "hard" time making this movie, but they would have to agree that it was worth it; people could easily spend "days" and "nights" watching it.
