Deleted scenes from “The Beatles: Get Back” we’ll never see

Peter Jackson’s documentary series “The Beatles: Get Back” premiered at Disney+ over Thanksgiving weekend. The three-episode special, which lasted 470 minutes, was cut out of more than 60 hours of original studio footage and 150 hours of audio recordings.

To maintain continuity, simplify the features and get the final uptime in less than eight hours, the following moments have been modified:

Day 1: Paul appears at Twickenham Studios with 11 new songs, as well as a formula for an unknown future pandemic vaccine he jotted down the booth on his way.

the second day: Peter Sellers drops by Twickenham to say hi to Ringo, his partner in the upcoming movie, “The Magic Christian”. The visit is interrupted when Yoko Ono asks the vendors if he will call her estranged husband’s divorce attorney and threatens him with Clouseau’s voice.

Day 3: Paul, George, and Ringo arrive to find that John and Yoko have covered the entire Twickenham studios with bed sheets. Before passing on the scaffolding, John declared the Beatles “bigger than Christo.”

the fourth day: George briefly quit the band after Paul gently criticized the way he patted a packet of cigarettes on his palm.

Day 5: Pete Best hinges, and the toilet separates.

the sixth day: After lunch, George invited Hare Krishna to a Twickenham mat, and announced that he was going back to school to become a substance abuse counselor. Recording engineer Glenn Jones convinces him to leave the carpet or it will take another nine hours to recreate the vocal levels.

the seventh day: The band rejects further suggestions by director Michael Lindsey Hough for an outdoor concert. Among them: a burning orphanage, Queen Elizabeth’s large purse, Tom Jones’s pants, a Wakanda, the gap between Terry Thomas’ teeth, the surface of Brian Epstein’s pharmacist and Stonehenge.

the seventh day: (Audio only) An alleged 30 minute screaming match between Paul and John. Audio was determined to be unusable because the microphone was hidden in a two-door flower pot below the studio in Twickenham Florists.

Eighth day: George briefly quit the band after John explained why he referred to Glenn Jones as the stage actress and singer for “Glenys Jones”. George claims to have actually come up with that nickname, but no one has heard of it because it’s the quiet Beetle. During the heated seven-minute debate, Paul wrote the entire words for “Send in the Clowns” on the back of a handkerchief, shoving them into his jacket pocket, where they remained for three and a half years until Stephen Sondheim mysteriously discovered them in Manhattan. Dry cleaner.
