The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today: February 23, 1965 (Tuesday)

Although today was intended as a rest day following their trip from London to New Providence Island in the Bahamas, The Beatles began filming their second feature film on this day.

Filming began in the afternoon. Firstly, in an unused scene Ringo Starr listened to conch shells in the docks near Mackey Street, before all four Beatles were filmed swimming fully-clothed in the pool at the Nassau Beach Hotel in the island's West Bay region.

The Beatles worked without a day off over the next 14 days in the Bahamas.
