DescriptionMagical Mystery Tour (New Line, Early 1970s). Folded, Very Fine+. College Poster (23" X 29").
Originally filmed as a TV special for the BBC, this was the Beatles' follow-up to their second movie, Help! John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr, along with a bunch of friends and acquaintances, board a special bus and take, literally, a magical mystery tour around the English countryside, showcasing some of the band's greatest songs, including "Fool on the Hill," "I am the Walrus," "Blue Jay Way," and the title number. Surprisingly, the film was a bomb both times it was shown on British television (probably because it was shown in black and white, not color) and was consequently never broadcast in the U.S. It did become quite a success, however, on the American midnight movie and college circuit, from whence this great poster hails. It you are a Beatles fan or a completist of their posters, you better act now, as these do not show up often!
Estimate: $400 - $800.
