Magical Mystery Tour

Magical Mystery tour was the third movie the Beatles appeared in, and also shared the name of their eighth album.  The film was directed by Paul McCartney and aired on Boxing Day in black and white instead of color.  The film proved to be a flop by the UK press.  the Daily Epress called it "blatant rubbish" and described it as "a great deal of raw footage showing a group of people getting on, getting off, and riding on a bus".  Although the film was not cared for, the soundtrack for Magical Mystery Tour was a hit and was even nominated for a Grammy award in 1968 for the best album.  I have never seen all Of Magical Mystery Tour but I saw about half of it and it is probably the weirdest movie I've ever seen.  I love the Soundtrack though, it has some of the greatest songs.
