Every day, come rain or shine or internet tubes breaking, Film School Rejects showcases a trailer from the past.
The Beatles are arguably the largest worldwide, music phenomenon of the 20th century. Their influence and skill cannot be overstated, and they are partially (alongside The Beach Boys) responsible for the past four decades of pop music (for better or for worse).
