55 Years Ago Today The Beatles Filmed 'Penny Lane'

It was on this day in 1967 when the Beatles filmed portions of the horse scenes for the film of "Penny Lane." That video, together with the clip for "Strawberry Fields Forever", were some of the first examples of what became known as 'music video.' Ironically, the music video for the song was not filmed at Penny Lane, as the Beatles were reluctant to travel to Liverpool. Street scenes were shot in and around Angel Lane in London's East End. The broken sequence of John Lennon walking alone was filmed on the King's Road (at Markham Square) in Chelsea.
