In September 1967, The Beatles loaded a film crew onto a bus along with friends, family and cast and headed west on the A30 out of London to make their third film, this time conceived and directed by The Beatles themselves. The film followed a loose narrative and showcased six new songs: “Magical Mystery Tour,” “The Fool on the Hill,” “I Am the Walrus,” “Flying,” “Blue Jay Way,” and “Your Mother Should Know.” Magical Mystery Tour features a fabulous supporting cast of character actors and performers, including Ivor Cutler, Victor Spinetti, Jessie Robins, Nat Jackley, Derek Royle, and the inimitable Bonzo Doo Dah Band.
