Beatles fans say "yeah!" to The Seventh Python
The premier Beatles fansite, Beatles Unlimited, has taken notice of The Seventh Python, the movie from our pals at Frozen Pictures about Bonzo, Python pal and Rutle Neil Innes.
Beatle connections? A few. Paul McCartney produced Neil's only Top 10 single (I'm The Urban Spaceman by The Bonzo Dog Band); Neil and the Bonzos appeared in Magical Mystery Tour; Neil portrayed Ron Nasty, the Lennon character in The Rutles; Neil was good friends and collaborated with George Harrison; Neil's music was ripped off by Oasis; and The Seventh Python will be screened in August at the Fest for Beatles Fans in Chicago.
The Seventh Python premieres June 26th at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, opening the American Cinematheque's ninth Mods & Rockers Film Festival.
