After the Beatles completed Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band in April 1967, Paul McCartney wanted to create a film that captured a psychedelic theme similar to that represented by author and LSD proponent Ken Kesey’s Merry Pranksters on the US West Coast. Titled Magical Mystery Tour, the film was to be unscripted: various “ordinary” people were to travel on a coach and have unspecified “magical” adventures. The Beatles recorded the song “Magical Mystery Tour”, but the film idea then lay dormant as the band continued recording songs for the United Artists animated film Yellow Submarine and, in the case of “All You Need Is Love”, for their appearance on the Our World satellite broadcast on 25 June. The death of their manager, Brian Epstein, in late August, which the Beatles learned of while attending a Transcendental Meditation seminar in Wales, led to the Magical Mystery Tour film becoming a reality. During a band meeting in early September, McCartney suggested they proceed with the film, to ensure the group had a point of focus while coming to terms with the loss of their manager.
