The Ozark Foothills FilmFestâ€™s “Arkansas Filmmakers Showcase” — a part of the April 10th-April 14th, 2002 fest — is gearing up to screen “When I Was Younger: A Weekend With the Beatles” (2002). Michael Bowman and Kim Imboden’s film chronicles the lone visit by the Beatles to Arkansas during the heydey of their American tour in September of 1964:
Reportedly, the Beatles had a 3-day break before the final show of their tour. They secretly flew into the tiny town of Walnut Ridge, Arkansas, on their way to a secluded ranch in Missouri. “When I Was Younger” tells the story of how the teenagers of Walnut Ridge reacted to the surprise visit from the most popular musical group in the world.
TRIVIA! Can you name the song that the title of this film comes from? It might “Help!” to read a Beatles movie review to refresh your memory…
