David Picker talks about his new book, The Beatles, and the movies
Many pop groups can’t make that transition, which is why we were so lucky with the Beatles because the film is so quirky. Both movies are shapeless; there’s no beginning, middle, or end. They’re more of an exercise in style than they are story. It worked out for everyone in the end . There’s a chapter where you briefly talk abut the United Artists record company, but the small experience seemed to have left a bad taste in your mouth. What was the difference between working for that company vs the movies? DP: There was nothing wrong with the company. We stated the company to get control of the film soundtracks. In movies you can market content, with music groups it’s much harder to break. If they work that’s great. The big success we had were soundtracks, movies with dramatic scores. When you have a record company you need variety in the content. We sold some rights to RCA to offset some of the costs, but it was created as an asset for the company. Song royalties are something you can make money off of for a long time.
The hotel was built in 1964 by former sumo wrestler Yonetaro Otani, and is famous for its revolving restaurant and enormous Japanese gardens. Hotel New Otani , 4-1 KioI-Cho, Chiyoda-Ku, Tokyo, 102-8578, Japan, +81 3 3265 1111; from $303 per room per night One&Only Ocean Club, Bahamas Keep an eye for Villa 1085 in “Casino Royale.” In “Casino Royale,” Bond girl Solange is seen arriving at the resort before checking into Villa 1085. The property appears throughout the film: Bond is seen walking through the reception area, playing poker in the library and exploring the Versailles-themed gardens. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the Ocean Club’s Dune restaurant now offers a Casino Royale cocktail — a combination of vodka, gin and wine. One&Only Ocean Club , One Casino Drive, Paradise Island, Bahamas; +242 363 2501; from $555 per room per night Hotel Cipriani, Venice, Italy Daniel Craig’s James Bond moors his yacht at this hotel’s private marina in “Casino Royale.” The crew took over the Cipriani’s restaurant to film this scene, and parts of the terrace appear throughout. Cast and crew stayed at the hotel during filming and the hotel’s head barman recalls Craig enjoying a nightcap or two with co-star Eva Green. On one of his first visits to the bar, the actor was apparently offered a martini but opted for a Bellini, instead. Hotel Cipriani , Giudecca 10, 30133 Venice, Italy; +39 041 240 801; from $1,547 per room per night The Langham, London In “GoldenEye” — the first James Bond film not based on Ian Fleming’s novels — this London hotel doubles as St. Petersburg’s Grand Hotel Europe. The Langham was built in 1865 and is one of London’s first purpose-built hotels. “Goldeneye” isn’t the hotel’s only starring role — it also appears in Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s film “Winning London.” No, we haven’t seen it either.
