Am doing research for a new Beatles script/short. I want to write about their 5 day stay in 1965 at the house in L.A. I plan to create a fictional character, a young local dude with a home movie camera, who John gets to stay with htem, and film it all.
So there'll be all the acid trips, celeb meetings, Elvis, all mixed in with references to future Beatle songs, told in a dreamy sort of doco type way (hopefully)
While I was googling BCD, I came across a discussion from 2007, on some Beatle site. Someone ventured that the BCD house was actually made up and the boys stayed at another address in Curzon Terrace, in another part of L.A. They had pics of the house and the boys which I'd never seen before.
But the BCD house is mentioned in almost every factual account so I discounted it all. Then I realised they stayed in this other house in 1966!! Amusiingly, one of the people discussing this, points out who is in this longrange photo, and says, 'George is holding a fan-made yellow submarine toy, etc. Obviously not much of a Beatle fan, as that proves it is 1966 and not at BCD.
Anyway, if anyone out there has more links to websites or books where I can leran more about BCD, or any ideas for my script, please feel free to post.
