Go on a Magical Mystery Tour with The Beatles
In the grand scheme of The Beatles’ illustrious career, their third film ‘Magical Mystery Tour’ is that of legend. It’s argued as both the best and worst thing to come from the Fabulous Four, but we think as long as you take it as the tongue-in-cheek lark it was made to be, you’ll think it’s pretty swell.
Written and directed by the band themselves, it follows a dreamlike bus trip to the seaside that goes askew at the hands of magicians. It’s barely a story (which is half the fun), created to string together six new songs, including ‘Magical Mystery Tour’, ‘I Am The Walrus’ and ‘Fool On The Hill’.
First aired on BBC1 in the UK on Boxing Day 1967, Magical Mystery Tour has only improved with time, and is now available fully restored! The Blu-ray, DVD and Boxset releases include never-before-seen footage, special features galore (including newly-filmed interviews with Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr), and the director’s commentary by Paul McCartney.
To celebrate the release of the Magical Mystery Tour feature film, we’re giving away 2 copies of it (1 standard DVD and 1 Blu-Ray Disc). For your chance to win either one, just tell us in 25 words or less: Who is your favourite Beatle and why?
