“The Fool on the Hill” from the film Magical Mystery Tour (1967)

“Wanderer above the sea of fog” by Caspar David Friedrich (1818). File from English Wikipedia.
This cannot be a coincidence. I believe John Lennon was familiar with Friedrich’s painting already when he studied art in Liverpool, and for sure when the Beatles stayed in Hamburg he saw it in the Kunsthalle.

Girl and boy interrupted

with 2 comments

Astrid Kirchherr (Sheryl Lee): Will you come back?

Stu Sutcliffe (Stephen Dorff): I’ll write.

Astrid: I don’t like letters!

Stu: I’ll write anyway.

Astrid: I have to see your eyes when you talk to me.

Stu: You don’t have to open them. You can throw them in a drawer, and then when I come back, you can open them and have a laugh!

From the film Backbeat by Iain Softley (1994).
