I enjoy collecting original Beatles-related teen magazines, mainly for the pictures. The articles can be quite hilarious because they are so over-the-top and erroneous. (The Beatles themselves didn't find them too funny, however!)
The second, third and fourth photos were taken as the Beatles rehearsed for their first appearance on Big Night Out, filmed September 1, 1963. They appeared in their collarless Pierre Cardin suits and mimed to "From Me To You," She Loves You," "Twist and Shout," and "I Saw Her Standing There." The entire show circulates among collectors, and portions of it appear in the Anthology.
