Rain - The Truth Is Out!
« on: May 14, 2004, 01:17:47 AM »

Finally... I can confirm that it WAS this Rain who provided the music to the movie "Birth of the Beatles"!

Here's an article about it:

Rain's act became so successful that they were asked to do the soundtrack for the movie, The Birth of the Beatles produced by Dick Clark in 1979. Mark Lewis:

That is interesting.  I have never seen that movie, though.  I will have to check it out.

It's basically their Hamburg years right up to about 1964. It's interesting but a little historically incorrect in places. Pete Best was a consultant for the film.

Well worth looking out for though!

you'll find it somewhere on the internet.

'Birth of the Beatles' is a v.interesting film because it is both very bad and very good.

bad because Nick Cotton from Eastenders is an unconvincing George Harrison, John Lennon looks ten years older than the others (maybe someone can tell me how old the actor was at the time) and Stu Sutcliffe isn't the slightest bit bohemian in the film.

however it's good because of a very good depiction of late 50's liverpool and i think it captures the spirit of the beatles and what they were possibly 'really' like. The John character is well done despite looking old, and Paul, Eppy, Ringo and Rory Storm all look quite convincing.

i think some of the accuracies were deliberate, such as mentioning lines from 'Getting Better' in 1959!!!!, 8 years before it was written, but as i said on an earlier thread, because it was a low-budget made-for-T.V film, there is slightly more realism than 'Backbeat' which was good but seemed to be a glamorous drama that happened to be based on the Beatles.

Birth Of the Beatles is one of the cheesiest television movies about the Beatles even though the guy portraying John played him alright!
