NOT THE BEATLES

"This title has really nothing to do with the Beatles, except very few glimpses of Paul around the end of 1966, probably around the time of Sgt. Peppers album.
These are only home movies taken by Mal Evans, the Beatles' road manager that apparently was on holyday with Paul and Derek Taylor and a few others, but again, it has nothing whatsoever to do with the Beatles (although the few takes of Paul are always nice to see). The DVD package is called The Beatles, and I suspect this is only to help sell this item. It should have been called Mal Evans home movies, which is really what these are, nothing more.
Nice quality video and transfer to DVD."
It ain't much Paul, but it isn't bad.

"I like it. It reminds me of home movies my parents took in the 1960s. Then, all of a sudden, there's Paul, but not for long. It doesn't say anything about Paul. It doesn't really follow Paul. It is like a home movie.....with Paul in it!
I guess that is why I like it. There are four parts: Los Angeles, Colorado, Portugal, and Africa. The color is great, and so is the scenery. It is filmed in typical, shaky, 8mm fashion, but it is still pretty good.
But don't think you are getting a Beatles movie. You are getting a home movie.....with a little bit of Paul McCartney in it."
