The Magic Christian
The cover of the Soundtrack Album for the Magic Christian appears prominently in the "Isn't it lily" video.
That's a very interesting movie. I was incorrect earlier when I said that the new video premiered on the Iamaphoney bogus YouTube page named after Mal Evans. It actually appeared a little earlier on http://www.youtube.com/user/lAMAPH0NEY, which is another bogus Iamaphoney site.
If you click that link above, you will see this background.
I believe that is Spahn ranch, the place where the Manson family resided in 1969, the site of the murder of Shorty Shea, and allegedly, the place where Iamaphoney left a suitcase for someone to find.
The Video log at http://www.youtube.com/user/lAMAPH0NEY, (note that the first letter is not an "I") also contains the trailer for the movie "The Magic Christian."
In addition to Ringo Starr and Peter Sellers, an interesting group of people worked on that movie.
1) Apple executive Dennis O'Dell
2) Spike Mulligan, who like Sellers was one of the Goons
3) Terry Southern, who is pictured on the Sgt. Pepper Cover
4) Christopher Lee, who is pictured on the Band on the Run Cover
5) Michael Aspel, also from the Band on the Run Cover
6) A couple Monty Python members Graham Chapman and John Cleese
7) Raquel Welch, who I believe was hosting Saturday Night Live the night when Lorne Michaels offered the Beatles $3000 to re-unite.
8) Thunderclap Newman formed by Pete Townsend and featuring future Wings guitarist Jimmy McCulloch. The original name for the song "Something In The Air" from the movie was actually "Revolution."
9) Director of Rosemary's Baby and star of "allofthemwitches" videos Roman Polanski
