Uncut 105 minute European version! Includes nudity, swearing and several scenes not included in the edited U.S. version. "Birth of the Beatles" follows the Beatles from their scruffy beginnings in Liverpool to their wild times in Hamburg and their invasion of America via the Ed Sullivan show broadcasts.
Many significant events in the Beatles early history are depicted including the famous audition for Larry Parnes at Liverpool's Blue Angel club, meeting the "Exis" in Hamburg, the introduction of the "mop top" haircut, their explosion onto the Liverpool scene, Cavern Club gigs, meeting Brian Epstein, Decca auditions, the sacking of Pete Best, meeting George Martin, recording at Abbey Road, their first number one hit record and many others!
The Beatles tried to have this film stopped. It's really good considering they were casting for lookalikes rather than acting ability. Filmed in Liverpool. Where are we going fellas? Pete Best was the technical consultant. Music by the group, Rain. This is the only Beatle biopic that was made while John Lennon was still alive. Stephen MacKenna, Rod Culbertson, Ray Ashcroft, Ryan Michael, David Wilkinson, John Neville, Brian Jameson. Birth of the Beatles!
