Bridge On (Over) The River Kwai

"I saw a film today, oh boy, the English army had just won the war..."

It was the mysterious discussion forum character Apollo C. Vermouth who speculated that the above line from the song "A Day In The Life" could have been a reference to the movie "Bridge On the River Kwai." The film, released in 1957 (the year that Lennon met McCartney), starred William Holden and Alec Guinness. Its connections to the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album, released a decade later, are remote but numerous.

Apollo pointed out that the film may have been the inspiration for the Beatles imaginary singer Billy Shears. As indicated in the IMDb entry, the name William Shears can be constructed from the main character credit.



Any avid reader of Apollo's posts must have been confused about why he would make a stretch like that. Apollo reported that the Shears character even told a nurse in the film "All you need is love." He also added, "What profound effect did it have on Lennon, who went on to play in a movie titled, "How I Won the War." [I would have put a question mark there, but I guess we'll blame that on his typist]



Although the Shears character is American, a main focus of the film is a bridge that English prisoners of war are forced to build for the enemy. The bridge is built and ultimately destroyed, leading to the defeat of the Japanese.

If you are looking for a connection between all of this and the Paul Is Dead rumor or The Rotten Apple Series, I haven't got one. However, if there is a code of some kind, this very well may be a part of it.

One reason why I have never accepted the premise that the Sgt. Pepper cover is simply a collection of the Beatles heroes is that I cannot imagine a gathering of that kind not having any representation from the British Comedy group The Goons. The Beatles praised the Goons frequently throughout their careers. George adored Peter Sellers, who was even present in the "Get Back" film footage. Paul paid tribute to Spike Milligan with a medley of "Yesterday" and the "Ying Tong Song."

The Goons may not have been on the Sgt. Pepper cover, but they do have strong connections with the Beatles and one pretty strong connection with "The Bridge On the River Kwai." This connection also involves the Beatles Producer, George Martin.

In 1962 Spike Milligan and Peter Sellers, with Peter Cook and Jonathan Miller released the record 'Bridge On The River Wye'. It was a spoof of the film 'Bridge On The River Kwai', being based around the 1957 Goon Show 'An African Incident'. It was intended to have the same name as the film, but shortly before its release, the film company threatened legal action if the name was used. Producer George Martin (of Beatles fame) edited out the 'K' every time the word 'Kwai' was spoken. And so, 'The Bridge on the River Wye' was created. (from http://www.thegoonshow.net/facts.asp)

There are some other crazy connections. The song that the soldiers are whistling in the movie is called the Colonel Bogey March. In the late 1970s, Ringo signed the artist Colonel Doug Bogie to his Ring-O Records label. John indicated that the news story about the death of Tara Browne inspired part of the song "A Day In The Life." Browne was the heir of the Guinness fortune and Alec Guinness starred in "Bridge On the River Kwai." Oh yes, "The Bridge on the River Wye" skit by the Goons featured Peter Cook, one half of the team that would eventually record the famous Beatles outfake "L.S. Bumble Bee."

The last connection comes from Beatle Ringo Starr, who hosted Saturday Night Live episode #186. Towards the end of the show, Ringo starred in a skit that was a spoof on "The Bridge On the River Kwai."



In the skit, the British Army and their enemy utilized Reverse Psychology. (Didn't Rotten Apple #1 use REVERSE psychology?)

One final fact: The episode of Saturday Night Live, hosted by Ringo Starr and featuring a skit based on "Bridge On the River Kwai" was performed and broadcast live on December 8, 1984, exactly four years after John Lennon was killed only blocks away.

What is this code?

Good morning, good morning, hey, Bulldog! Let’s twist and shout, like we were flying across the universe until we get to Pepperland, where we can meet that nowhere man who’s going to be in Strawberry Fields forever!

We can move then with this shot of rythm and blues and visit Lucy in the sky with diamonds, she’s crying for help! because she’s crippled inside. She hates isolation, it’s been a hard day’s night for her.

Both of them can come together with us, and have some of that rock and roll music, with a woman that’s no longer a girl. She’s got a ticket to ride, I should have known better se wasn’t going to stand by me.

Imagine we start a revolution: they would give peace a chance! Don’t let me down, or I’ll cry instead. Don’t think I’m a loser: I am the walrus! I don’t want to spoil the party, but there will be not a second chance for cleanup time.

Mean Mr Mustard, Julia, dear Prudence and Polythene Pam will be waiting for us. Rain and the Sun king will be there too. You’ve got to hide your love away, or you’ll have to run for your life, beautiful boy.

When I get home, please please me, and call this boy: he’s a working class hero, so he won’t be watching the wheels. Nobody told me this, but I am God, and I can see through a glass onion.

That’s all I’ve got to do today. Tomorrow never knows, but now I’m so tired and I’m only sleeping, so don’t be bad to me and don’t ask me why. Don’t worry, I feel fine… all you need is love… it’s only love, yes it is…

You know my name (look up the number).

Uh, Taf, aside from the "I am he as you are me" reference, it is not a RUMOR that your name is attached to Phoney's email account. A rumor is an unsubstantiated story. Have you brought that up with "him" yet? "Hey, wacko, what are you doing using my screename on your email account"

And why would you not mention that little tidbit on your post? I know if Phoney was using my name, I would say a little something about it. So your coy lack of acknowledgment might easily be construed as complicity.

Maybe you want us to think that, so you keep the fire stoked, kinda like how the Beatles let the PID rumors go on longer than they needed to, to keep the fans interested. So maybe you guys are playing a little game about who is who and about replacements with this turn of events. Is Taf phoney? Is Phoney Taf? Is Paul Billy Shears? blah blah.

Yeah, Taf, but everyone knows all of them had a list and they couldn't get everyone in there between the four of them. I could fill a wall like that with my own idols or interesting characters; I could fill five walls with it.

Also, the suits might have said no one knows the goonies so drop em.

this idea that the people on the cover are a code is ludicrous. There is no way to confirm it, anyway, we can all make up a narrative using that many people and connections, and it's already been done ad naseum at NIR.

"One reason why I have never accepted the premise that the Sgt. Pepper cover is simply a collection of the Beatles heroes is that I cannot imagine a gathering of that kind not having any representation from the British Comedy group The Goons."

The other comment addressed Taf's reasoning and I'll question it too. Where's Carl Perkins? Little Richard? The Everly Brothers? Buddy Holly? ELVIS?Any Beatle fan worth his salt knows that there were no bigger influences on the Beatles.I cannot imagine any representation NOT having them either but it doesn't. Much of the laundry list of figures on Sgt. Pepper looks more like the trendy icons college kids in 1967 would think were cool. The sculptor Larry Bell may have been a "hero" to a pretentious 20 something Beatle in 1967 but you don't hear Ringo dropping his name in 2010 anywhere do you?
That's because Ringo grew up and he's not self consciously arty anymore.

The Beatles were great songwriters but they were just young men and had the same pretentious arty leanings as any college kid at the time.

So no Carl Perkins, Buddy Holly, Elvis, etc, because they were out of fashion in 1967, despite being huge influences on the group.

Taf should know that too but, you see, it doesn't fit his "Bridge On The River Kwai" nonsense so he leaves that part out. Maybe he IS Iamaphoney after all. That's the sort of retarded garbage I expect from him not Taf.

Anonymous said...

I won't bother to copy and paste like everyone else here does but Taf has more in common with LetterB on NIR these days than Iamaphoney. They both have the same act where you draw connections from anywhere to the Beatles. You could do it with Paris Hilton in about 5 seconds. Lennon stayed at the Amsterdam Hilton in 1969/ Paris Hilton was friends with Lindsay Lohan and they famously had photos taken without their underwear/"Boy, you've been a naughty girl you pulled your knickers down"/ Lindsay Lohan starred in Chapter 24 about the murder of John Lennon.

OOOHHHH! SCARY!! OOOOHHH!

What a perfect way to end April Fools Month. I have willingly been Iamaphoney's fool this month and I have learned plenty. I believe he loves me and I love him too. I have used the month of April to pay a special tribute to him and I hope he enjoyed it. It was a challenge, and there were some touch and go moments, but I made it through.

It will be interesting to see if the readers of this blog stay up the next 24 hours to see what Iamaphoney does. I'm a fool, but I'm not an idiot. I realize that some people have lost interest. I haven't. There are still rich areas to explore in the mysterious world of the Beatles. So, I'll keep posting for a while and I hope you all will keep reading and contributing. I have especially enjoyed all of those people who commented, that includes those who disagreed with me, corrected me, educated me, made me laugh, and made my day with kind words.

Hope to see you all in the coming months or maybe sooner if Iamaphoney actually comes through with something interesting before the clock of April Fool's month strikes midnight.

That explains Dion. All the pretentious arty kids in 1967 were totally into Dion. They all thought Sir Robert Peel and Issy Bonn were hip and arty too. And Laurel and Hardy? Why, they were at the pinnacle of popularity in 1967 amongst the artsy set. And I understand that Huntz Hall was quite the pop-culture icon in 1967 as well. Now don't even get me started on Shirley Temple!

You've got a point with Dion but you're wrong on all the others. Huntz Hall and Leo Gorcey were a major pop Icon in the 60's as was Shirley Temple and Laurel and Hardy. There was a major resurgence in the appreciation of Hollywood films of the 20's and 30's among college kids at the time. That resulted in countless documentaries, Marx Brothers film festivals (Groucho was adopted by the counter-culture) Harold Lloyd giving college tours, Bowery Boys movies on TV every Saturday morning. Hey, were you even alive in 1967? I guess not.

Well, obviously the idea was a collection of interesting folks, iconic people, some of whom would be sort of out of place (Beatles loved that sort of clash of styles and sensibility). But Bridge on the River Kwai? Lord.

Buddy Holly...

"I'll never think of Buddy as being six feet under."

Maria said she has nurtured a "growing belief in spirituality by reading many books on the subject."

Earlier this year, she visited the apartment building where she and Holly lived. She saw musicians singing in nearby Washington Square Park, the same place where Holly used to "go to listen to people play and show them guitar chords," said Maria. "And I gave one musician $9 because 9 was Buddy's favorite number."

By the time she returned to Dallas, said Maria, "I'd brought Buddy's spirit home with me. Now I feel he is here with me. I know some people do not believe in spirituality, but I do."

Years have passed since she made a stop in Lubbock.

Yeah, dude, that's a question that has often been asked and not answered by PID/PWR people. It's the elephant in the room. Some of these folks fancy themselves super detectives because they've "discovered" Paul is not Paul from the very clues Paul and the rest provided for them, and they aren't sure how to respond to that. It would mean "Faul" wants them to know, and he's giving them help. So there is this contradiction in this belief that the Beatles made it very obvious for everyone while simulaneously going to extreme lengths to "cover it all up" by murdering people and hiring disinformants. Well, either they want you to know or not.

I knew about PID when I was eight years old. Everyone heard about it, the can of worms was opened, and opened, allegedly, by the Beatles.

The other elephant in the room is that ONLY a few fans believe it. They can't explain how no one else, either in the music industry or anywhere else for that matter, not a single person who ever knew Paul McCartey, believes it.

They can't explain that by saying thousands of people were threatened. They can't explain it by saying everyone that ever knew Paul was paid off. They can't explain the silence of thousands upon thousands of people without resort to a conspiracy that wouldn't even exist without the clues in the first place.

Hmm. . .well apparently you are one of the Nutters trying to make it look like there is something funny going on. Anyone can make a facebook page. I woudn't worry about it. Paul isn't dead, and even Phoney didn't get the 15 minutes of fame he was shooting for, so neither will Nutters.
