VIDEO: The Beatles’ Shakespeare spoof from “Around the Beatles in full color

Awesome news clip.  I had not seen this in color.

In 1964, in honour of Shakespeare’s 400th birthday, the Beatles performed this play-within-a-play on “Around the Beatles.”

* I did not colourise this skit, it’s from a DVD called “the Beatles Explosion”

One of these days Apple and The Beatles will release a definitive Beatles on film DVD set.  For now, though, youtube clips will have to suffice.
