2019.46 Twist and Shout (Royal Variety) — The Beatles, Antony Rotunno, Malcolm McDowell, Wilfrid Mellers, Billy Preston

"The Compleat Beatles" began life as a promotional film intended as promotion for a two-volume set of Beatles sheet music.     That project eventually became a success in the early home video market (VHS, Beta and Laserdisc), earning a theatrical release in 1984.     Antony Rotunno, host of the "Glass Onion: On John Lennon" podcast joins us again, as we pick up the film in 1962, and continue our review through the end of the Beatles, the early 1980's production of the project, and touch on how it might be changed and improved should Apple ever see fit to let it escape from their archives.
