Magical Mystery Tour
This is my favorite scene from The Beatles 1967 movie "Magical Mystery Tour", which at the time was put down as "too weird" & "self-indulgent". I think its great to watch. I agree it is very weird, but in a great way. Of course the songs are fantastic: I Am The Walrus, Fool On The Hill, Blue Jay Way, Your Mother Should Know. Anyway this photo is from the scene where John is a waiter shoving spaghetti onto the fat woman's plate. In The Beatles Anthology book Paul says that John dreamed that scene and they decided to film it based on the dream. Can you imagine that happening in a movie today? Another reason why "Magical Mystery Tour" is great.
