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.
