Shooting began today in front of the hotel, where they filmed a "tobaggan hire" sequence not used in the finished print. They then moved elsewhere in the locality and were filmed falling backwards together into snow. Beatles "doubles" wee also in action the first day, filmed riding on horse-drawn sleigh. (The doubles were Cliff Diggins, mick Dillion, Peter Cheevers and Joe Dunne, Londoners all.)

The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today: March 13, 1965 (Saturday)-

Two days after returning from the Bahamas, the Beatles and their film crew once again departed England for foreign climes: this time to the snow-capped mountains of Austria. They flew out of London Airport on the 11:00 am flight for Salzburg, where they were greeted by some 4,000 fans and scores of Austiran journalists. After a press conference at a nearby hotel - filmed, typically, by newsreel and TV cameras, the Beatles were taken to the Hotel Edelweiss in Obertauern, where they were based until departure on the 22nd. All of the filming took place in Obertauern.

The Beatles filmed at what, in the movie, they assumed to be a temple, and what, in real life, they assumed to be a disused army camp. In fact, it was a ramshackle hospital for handicapped children and old people, the state of which disgusted the Beatle.)
