After a long streak of perfectionism throughout the ‘60s, the whimsical 1967 film Magical Mystery Tour proved The Beatles were capable of mistakes after all. The Fab Four’s earlier films Hard Day’s Night (1964) and Help (1965) were worldwide successes and it seemed The Beatles were just as accomplished on the big screen as they were in music. Unfortunately, this loosely-scripted movie was a complete failure and even their most devoted fans were disappointed the day Magical Mystery Tour aired on December 26, 1967.
