This Pathe Pictorial short was added to the Pathe film 'Pop Gear'
14 October 2009 | by gfastSee all my reviews

The Pathe Pictorial of the Beatles in concert was added to the Pathe feature 'Pop Gear' (aka 'Go Go Mania'), also shot in CinemaScope. This makes this footage of the Beatles extremely rare, as very little of their concert material (if any) was shot in CinemaScope and Technicolor to boot! It seems that this was the only Pathe Pictorial ever shot in 'Scope. Most (if not all) of the acts in 'Pop Gear' were managed by Beatles manager Brian Epstein, hence the decision to tag on the Beatles concert footage just as their meteoric rise was peaking. Thank you to the previous contributor for pointing out what concert this footage was from, as I often wondered where and when it was filmed.
