The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today: May 20, 1965 (Thursday)

Lennon’s at the Cannes Film Festival

May 20, 1965 - John and Cynthia walked hand-in-hand across the tarmac at London’s Heathrow airport accompanied by director Richard Lester to board their flight to the south of France to attend the annual Cannes Film Festival. Richard Lester’s new film, The Knack and How To Get It, was in competition at Cannes (and won the Grand Prix du Festival International du Film award). John & Cynthia socialized with actor Michael Caine, whose new film The Ipcress File, was also in competition at Cannes. John and Cynthia rarely danced in public - but Cannes was one of those rare happy occasions!
