    Beatles 8 Millimeter Film Footage, Early 1960s.
    The "Pop Movies" Ltd. company was a purveyor of Beatles 8mm film footage, sold to fans via advertising in teen magazines. Low quality by today's standards, the films were silent and limited by the resolution possible from 8mm. But in the days before YouTube (or even VHS) it was about the only way for fans to view motion images of the Fabs on demand - assuming you had a projector! This lot contains two films, both about three minutes in length - a black and white film of the February 1964 arrival at JFK airport, and a March 1965 color film of the band (along with Cynthia Lennon and Maureen Starkey) departing Heathrow airport for Salzburg, Austria where they would film parts of HELP! A DVD transfer of both films is included. The films are on their original reels, but do not include the original boxes. In Very Good condition, consistent with age.
