Ringo Special April 1978

In the meantime, I wonder if any Beatle friends can help me. I've written a piece about the 'Ringo' special from April 1978 with Carrie Fisher, Angie Dickinson etc, but I have no illustrations for it. Does anyone have any images from that special?

Here's Ringo, Carrie Fisher, and John Ritter.



Here's the whole special (I know it doesnt help you Bill)

The opening to the show pic


George and Ringo (black and white though)



Thats about all I could find on the net. There was another site that had three photos of Ringo during the shooting of the show (one on the bicycle and two standing there), but they had the copy and paste function disabled (bastards). Anyways, sorry the selections are so sad Bill.

Sorry, I had to tell you that it is possible to pick single pictures out of this footage. Just give me the shots you want (by minutes and seconds) and I will select them for you.

Thanks for these notes, Bill! I am glad to learn the story behind the Python sketch with Ringo and Lulu.

I'm with Marshall on this: let's get those clips out of the vault!

I'm sure that i'm alone on this but, I  loved Ringo's 1978 album, Bad Boy.
Heart on my sleeve, tonight, man like me, lipstick traces are my favorites.
but then again as a beatle fan, i love all their albums, as far as i'm concerned they are all worth buying.
I love, Gone troppo, Beaucoups of blues, Wildlife, Sometime in newyork city.
anyway, its cool to see Bad Boy videos on the Ringo special.

There are outtakes available? The finished version was bad enough; I'd hate to see what didn't make it in!
