The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today : March 4, 1964

Another train related sequence was shot today at the station in Crowcombe, Somerset, when the Beatles ran along the platform adjacent to the slowly moving train, pestering the uppper-crust passenger (Richard Vernon) and shouting "Hey mister! Can we have our ball back?"

One of the two schoolgirls cast by director Richard Lester for a train sequence - shot, in fact, on the first day, - was Pattie Boyd, with whom he had previously worked in a television commercial for Smith's potato crisps. Right away, George Harrison took a liking to Pattie and they soon began dating, leading to their marriage on January 21, 1966.
