Product description


Al Brodax was the producer of and with Erich Segal and others a co-author of the screenplay for The Beatles 'Yellow Submarine'. In this book he recalls a frenzied, madcap escapade that came to be reflected in an enduring piece of screen history. In addition to John, Ringo, Paul and George, and Al, the "cast" included more than a dozen animators, platoons of inkers, background artists, soundmen, cameramen, and various essential expediters. Recruited from the U.S., Europe, Australia and all over the U.K., they produced, aside from the film, more than a dozen pregnancies and one or two marriages. This story has been culled by the author from a rich jumble of late-night, early-morning scribblings during production. His generously illustrated book is a special gift to fans of the Beatles, of 'Yellow Submarine' and of spirited, flavourful writing about movies.
