    i love how george is staring at the camera looking all pissed off. ha.

  3. Beatle Ed says:

    This is why I love this blog. Great candid pics. Pattie looks very sweet.

  4. Lynn says:

    According to Wiki the date of the Let It Be screening was July 20, 1969 – also the date of the first moon landing – which George and his visiting father stayed up all night to watch. Are these photos from an auction?

  5. Markzapp says:

    Unfrickinbelievable! Am I dreaming or are these photos real???

  6. Markzapp says:

    I know they’re real and…NO SMOKING IN THE THEATER, please!

  7. Sara S. says:

    I am really at a loss for words. These recent photos really go hand in hand with the photos that appeared in a British newspaper years back. Ken Wood had all of those photos. He needs to see these!!! Greg you have left me with nothing to say but just sitting here with my mouth dropped open!!!

    Hi Sara, i feel such sorrow, i feel such shame ..

    I’m having computer ‘issew’s’ at the moment and i wasnt able to work on these photo’s before posting them, but they were so cool i couldnt wait, i’m hoping to tweak them tonight and repost them tomorrow morning, being a perfectionist is SUCH a burdon :-)

    I’m injoying picturing you like Willie E Coyote when his eyes are popping and his mouth is ajar :-)

    Greg xoxo

    Well, dearest Tammy, you’ve really excelled yourself here. You’re at your best when uncovering such gems – and avoiding the temptation for flatulence jokes.

  10. Ishie says:

    thank you, thank you, thank you … these are little treasures!

  11. Ishie says:

    thank you, thank you, thank you … I love the ‘personal’ type of photos that look like they came directly out of a scrapbook!

    Wonderful, historic photographs of the Beatles seeing a controversial motion picture. A rare shot of John without Yoko (she was taking the pictures apparently).

    But most importantly, are those green velvet chairs at the front in the first picture? Me want green velvet chairs, just saying.

  13. winston says:

    Amazing !

    You can see in their faces and attitudes that the group was really falling apart. Paul and Linda in their own world, Ringo on his own, JohnandYoko and George with Pattie and his mom and dad.

    You dont have to be too clever that the friendship wasn´t working.

  14. winston says:

    You dont have to be too clever TO SEE that the friendship wasn´t working.

  15. Dan says:

    Whoa, Greg – these are amazing.

    You never cease to amaze me with the shots you post. I’ve been a fan since 1975 and you manage to find stuff almost DAILY that I’ve never seen.

    Thanks thanks thanks.

    A photo from summer ’69 with all 4 Beatles in—pretty special stuff

  17. Chris says:

    Wow! What an amazing find! How is the world did you find this Tammy?

  18. Chris says:

    LOL! It looks like Patti is “texting” in the first photo. Texting in 69. :)

  19. beatle55 says:

    lynn’s right. the date is also in lewisohns book. love, a friend.

  20. Jennifer says:

    Thank you very much for these. : )

  21. Sara S. says:

    What Lewisohn book is the date in? I have look at my copies as well as John Winn’s book and cannot verify the date for the screening. Maybe I have overlooked it somehow???

  22. stephanie says:

    excellent colour restoration!!

    you should apply for a job at Apple , give Ron Furmanek a run for his money

  23. bill c. says:

    This would be the day the recorded come together…. yes ?

  24. Brian says:

    Photoshop’s AutoLevels is just brilliant at bringing back faded photos.
    GET THE NEGATIVES! :)

  25. BLJ says:

    Tammy, you have amazed me again with these wonderful photos. Keep up the great work.

  26. julie fajardo says:

    paul and linda are very sweet in the first photo, its rare to see pattie and linda are alongside with the beatles. love it…

  27. BeatleMark says:

    Wow! Smoke ’em if you got ’em!

  28. i kinda freaked out… thinking these were shot after the august 69 tittenhurst photo shoot…. but these are still HUGE pics!!!! thanks for posting!

  29. Tammy says:

    You know Julie, i think this is the ‘only’ photo of Linda and Pattie together, anyone know of any others?

  30. Brian says:

    The Beatles in the middle of taping Abbey Rd, watching themselves from 6 months earlier in sessions that were “a bit”up and down”. Seeing this film must have really cemented the decision to make Abbey Rd the last LP, at least for John.

  31. beatle55 says:

    hey sara s. . its in the complete beatles chronicle on the last page covering april of ’70. it also says that in oct. of ’69, the beatles minus john viewed the final version after they requested alot of john and yoko footage be removed from the film. this screening in july was on a sunday, and the following day they started ” come together “. love, a friend.

  32. Ken Wood says:

    Wow! Amazing find! Sara, it`s gotta be true – these must be related to the restaurant etc. pictures – we`re been speculating back then that it might have to do with a Let It Be screening because of Lindsay-Hogg being in the restaurant with them and BINGO! So nice to see those plus confirm it AND have a date now! Yippie!

  33. A Car And a Room And A Room And A Room says:

    Hi Ken Wood, the restaurant pics were taken after a different rough cut screening than this that occurred later in the year.

  34. Hopetone says:

    The restaurant pics were taken on the same day as Linda is pregnant in both pics, wearing the same blue dress, she gave birth to Mary at the end of August, also Paul and John are dressed the same – also John did not attend the later screening due to the cuts made of certain scenes which had himself and Yoko in them.

  35. Sara S. says:

    Ken…I cant’ find your email address, but I was wondering if you have all of those photos that were once posted from that magazine with the resturant photos. I can only find about half of them in my files.

    I found the date in Lewishon’s book. Thanks for letting me know where to look. I was looking on July 20, 1969.

    I am sure the resturant photos and these as well as the two of John and Yoko Tammy had on here a few weeks ago were all taken on July 20. Everyone is wearing the same clothes. Now there is a photo from the British newspaper from when the resturant photos were first published that show Yoko and Linda in what appears to be a hotel room. That photo may be from a different day because Linda is wearing a different shirt.

  36. Ken Wood says:

    Sara my email-adress is simple: myname@mysite.de
    My name is written together here just like the house.
    My site is the town the house is in.
    I should still have those photos but not on a accessible harddrive right now.
    There weren`t many though – I recall:
    – all at the restaurant
    – Linda and Yoko in the restaurant
    – Linda and Yoko in some room
    – Yoko leaning over the bowl
    – John full frontal
