Magical Mystery Tour

Plot from Wiki: The situation is that of a group of people on a British mystery tour [4] in a 1967 Bedford VAL Panorama coach, focusing mostly on Mr Richard Starkey (Ringo Starr) and his recently widowed Aunt Jessie (Jessie Robins). Other group members on the bus include the tour director, Jolly Jimmy Johnson (Derek Royle), the tour hostess, Miss Wendy Winters (Mandy Weet), the conductor, Buster Bloodvessel (Ivor Cutler), and the other Beatles.
During the course of the tour, "strange things begin to happen" at the whim of "four or five magicians", four of whom are played by the Beatles themselves and the fifth by long-time road manager Mal Evans.

The Magical Mystery Tour Song:


  1. Now that's a flaashback! I love your letterman letters.

  2. I don't think I've ever seen that film.

  3. Ah yes. The days when a lot of magical things were experienced.

  4. I loved this movie. Silly, silly fun.

  5. Haven't seen that film, sounds like fun. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Great to meet you.

    Best wishes,

  6. Interesting. I've never seen it. Seems like it should be shown on TV or something every now and then?

  7. I may have seen the film as a rerun during the school holidays. I vaguely remember it being quite whacky.

  8. Never seen it!!! And props to you for doing the A-Z, Cathrina… I'm not brave enough… ;-)

  9. Cathrina, you are doing a great job of keeping up with the Alphabet challenge. I've never heard of this movie.
