“Magical Mystery Tour” is far more focused than "Crossfire Hurricane," zeroing in on a single year and a single project
Last year, the Emmys’ Outstanding Nonfiction Special category saw a head-to-head battle between George Harrison and Paul Simon, with Martin Scorsese’s “George Harrison: Living in the Material World” winning over a field that also included Joe Berlinger’s “Paul Simon’s Graceland Journey: Under African Skies.”
But wouldn’t the Beatles vs. the Rolling Stones be an even more delicious battle? After all, that’s a time-honored rivalry, as Keith Richards explains in the Stones doc “Crossfire Hurricane” when he talks about how manager Andrew Loog Oldham consciously positioned the group as a rival to the Fab Four.
