Do I have rare film ?
« on: September 27, 2008, 10:36:56 AM »

Hi All,

I am a Beatles..but not a complete "anorak" if you get the drift...and I have some Beatles material on tape that may be rare or unseen...but then again I don't know as I dont know the ins and outs of collecting !!

I have B/W footage of Paperback Writer/Rain in the studio video clips that were made for Ed Sullivan/UK TV in 1966..

3 different performance of each (I think)...clapperboard intros as well.

Is  this material that is in the public domain already or shall I try and auction ?

Many many Thanks to all in advance !!!

Welcome filmyfan...that sounds a nice piece of nostalgia you have. There are more expert people on here but I would suggest checking you-tube as I know there are Ed Sullivan clips on there. With the clapperboard aswell, it maybe something of value. One or 2 of the takes could be 'unseen.'

Be sure to let us know how you get on. ;)

I'm definitely in the non-expert category as well, but one good reference book to check is Mark Lewisohn's Complete Beatles Chronicle. He lists all this stuff. I know the Beatles made promos for "Paperback Writer" and "Rain" at Chiswick House and in the studio, but I don't know how many takes they made of each or which ones were finally used. They were shot in color though, so if you've got black and white versions with the clapperboards on them, you've probably got a video transfer of some sort. Are all three versions studio takes?   :)

Should have asked... what sort of tape? Does it look like it's from the sixties or later? Where did you get it from?  Are there any labels or other markings on it? :)

Thanks All...it looks like the clips are available on a number of bootlegs...whether or not they are as complte as mine...who knows..

I came across this as a relative worked in a TV archive....and yes it was being thrown out (old VHS's I add) !...so it was nicked from the rubbish !
