Day 4: Pattie Boyd
“George, with velvet brown eyes and dark chestnut hair, was the best looking man I’d ever seen. At the break for lunch I found myself sitting next to him, whether by accident or design I have never been sure. We were both shy and spoke hardly a word to each other, but being close to him was electrifying. As the train neared London and the filming was winding down, I felt sad that such a magical day was ending. It had been pure joy and I wanted to capture it forever. As if George had known what I was thinking, he said “Will you marry me?” I laughed, as I had at all the Beatles jokes. I scarcely allowed myself to wonder why he had said it or whether he might feel as I did. Then he said, “Well if you won’t marry me, will you have dinner with me tonight?”
