Candid Photographs of The Beatles at the Premiere of the Animated Film ‘Yellow Submarine’ in London, 1968

The world première of The Beatles' animated feature film, Yellow Submarine, took place on the evening of July 17, 1968 at the London Pavilion on Piccadilly Circus.

Although the group had largely retreated from the public eye in recent months, with their trip to India and the recording of the White Album, their popularity remained undiminished. As with their previous film openings, large crowds turned out, blocking streets and bringing traffic to a standstill.

All four Beatles were in attendance: John Lennon with Yoko Ono, Ringo Starr with wife Maureen Starkey and George Harrison accompanied by his spouse Pattie. Paul McCartney came solo; three days later his fiance Jane Asher announces that their engagement has ended. Among the other guests were The Rolling Stones' Keith Richards, plus members of The Who, Status Quo and Grapefruit.
