Magical Mystery Tour—conceived and directed by The Beatles themselves—is a surreal take on the British tradition of a coach trip to the seaside, featuring the band members along with an eccentric cast of characters. The film was originally broadcast in the UK in 1967. While the music, featuring classic tracks like “Magical Mystery Tour,” “The Fool on the Hill,” and “I Am the Walrus,” was rapturously received, the movie was poorly reviewed by TV critics who expected something lighter and more in the style of of A Hard Day’s Night. As a result, the film never aired in the US and was not widely distributed. But now, 45 years on, the rarely seen classic film has been fully restored and is being presented in its original glory for the first time.
I HAVEN'T SEEN THIS IN AGES!
Man, this movie brings back so many great memories. The classic songs, the surreal characters, the campy visuals. Out of all the films starring The Beatles, "Magical Mystery Tour" is probably the most underrated of them all. I can't wait to rent it so I can experience the madness all over again!
We saw this movie last week in one of the 50 theaters in the US that was privileged to show it. The theater was filled with mostly people in the late 40's and 50's and their teen age kids. From start to finish the movie rocked with laughter and great music. The Music will never get old nor will the fans who grew up with the Beatles.
It's up there with a hard days night and help. A must see for any Beatles fan.
