A Very Young Sigourney Weaver Spotted on Vintage Beatles Footage
Paul Crowder film’s editor says, “We were going through the footage and there is a big party and Groucho Marx gets out of the car and they’re interviewing him and ask him if he’s coming to see the Beatles — Marx is like ‘nah, I’m here to drink,’” Crowder said. “So the cameraman pans around and there were two girls sitting in the car, and I’m like ‘God, that looks like Sigourney Weaver over there.
Then cut to another news source and its all these girls behind a barrier [at the concert] … and there she is! It is Sigourney Weaver. It was pretty amazing!”
The Alien actress saw the Beatles at the Hollywood Bowl in the mid sixties after her family moved in the area. She told British TV host Jonathan Ross in 2015. “I didn’t know anyone, and I just remember they were so far away. I must have been in the last row. I was surrounded by all these girls who were crying and screaming like the Trojan women. It was ridiculous. But I was so thrilled and every now and then I’d go, ‘Joooooooooooooooooooohn!” She said she couldn’t understand why some fans were crying. “Their music is so happy and joyous.”
Weaver also told Jimmy Fallen in 2015 she had another close encounter with the fab four after that concert, “This other girl and I were so overwhelmed, we sort of just sorted to wander home along the road and suddenly this limo comes out. It turns the corner, comes right toward us. It slows down and in the limo are the Beatles.” and she got a good look at the boys. So much so that she had to go home and lie down for 48 hours, look at the ceiling and go over it in her mind.
Can you imagine how excited she must be with the found footage. Check out our other video on how a little old lady contributed some valuable film to the project.
