Did You Know?
This movie was made during a period when Sir Ringo Starr, in between occasional single releases and session work, was concentrating on filmmaking and acting. Two movies in which he had starred, 200 Motels (1971) and Blindman (1971), had been released at the end of 1971, and before starting on this one, he had just finished work on his directorial debut, the T. Rex documentary Born to Boogie (1972). See more
