John and Yoko started filming ‘Fly’. The idea behind this one was to have a naked lady lying on a bed, whilst a fly walked up and down her body. The part of ‘lady’ was given to the superbly named Virginia ‘Lust’. Another film they did was ‘Apotheosis’. This featured a hot-air balloon rising from a snow-covered farm in the English countryside. The soundtrack was a pack of barking dogs, a hunting horn and a gun being fired, which gradually faded away to silence as the balloon entered the clouds. is not affiliated with or approved by The Beatles, Apple, MPL, EMI or Capitol Records.
