Raise your hand if you know that John Lennon decided to open “Please, Please Me” with the harmonica riff? A thoroughly enjoyable documentary, the Making of the Beatles takes you to the very beginning of one of the best, if not the best band of all times.
The Beatles completely owned the 50s and the 60s, growing from a local British band that played in small clubs in Glasgow, Dundee and Kirkcaldy to an international phenomenon that is still very much a mystery.
What happened to the Beatles? Why they disbanded? How were they formed? It all started in a England, where they played in small clubs. Once the band members realized their value, they started working more and more on their music, and they actually never stopped working.
Everything burned out some 10 years later, but for a period of seven or eight years, the Beatles owned the world.
This is their beginning story, featuring some unseen footage, as well as some comedy moments like Ringo being mentioned as the greatest drummer ever.
