The Linda McCartney Story
« on: May 07, 2005, 12:37:25 AM »

I've heard about this TV movie from some people, but I haven't actually seen it. The reviews varied greatly so I'm not sure whether I want to buy a bootleg DVD off of eBay or not.
Has anybody seen it, and if so, can you tell me whether it was any good? (Keep in mind I am a huge fan of Linda)

I saw The Linda McCartney Story which was cheesy for the most part but the scene of her dying with the actor playing Paul & the kids is heavy.

I always liked Linda.
Sorry to say, I saw this film and it was just forgettable.


But that's me!

I agree with you Mendips.  The final scene of her death with the guy playing Paul & the kids in this cheesy movie is heavy.

Yeah, about that. Does anyone actually have EVIDENCE or TESTIMONIALS that she slept with Mick Jagger or Jim Morrison? It's just that I hear this from *certain people* a lot of the time and I wanted to know.

Could be true, but who knows?

Might just have been vindictive gossip from people jealous she got close to the Beatles and then became Mrs. Macca.

At the time the buzz was that she was a professional groupie (only with the best mind). Not a hint of evidence of course.

I can't believe how much that girl does NOT look like Linda. She looks more like Heather if anyone. Paul married a plain Jane. She was earthy. This girl doesn't capture that. And that line about Jagger? Was Linda that crude?? She sure didn't seem like it in interviews. Also, isn't that the guy who played Paul in Backbeat?

Any resemblance? BTW, anyone see Gia? She played Angelina Jolie's girlfriend. Just some useless information there. Mainly for the guys.

Linda was homely, but in a pleasant kind of way. She reminds me of a sunflower, if that makes any sense whatsoever.

That woman looks nothing like her.

No it doesn't. But sometimes they choose jsut the perfect actors for movies (who look almost just like the real person), so they should've taken more time in casting members for this movie.
