She don’t need no introduction to you I hope. She met George during the set of A Hard Day’s Night, married him in ’66 en left him for Eric Clapton.
– Original film footage by Fenno Werkman. Fenno is the man behind Wintertijd of well-known Dutch producer, entertainer and host Harry de Winter. If almost is a tradition for Dutch TV broadcaster VPRO to broadcast some fine and rare Lennon stuff in December, last end of the year was no exception. In a one hour show he’ll present rare Harrison footage.
