When setting up the production of the fifth James Bond film, "You Only Live Twice", producer Albert R. Broccoli hit upon an idea - since most of the movie scenes were to be filmed in Japan, why not include a scene of James Bond attending a Beatles concert? The Beatles happened to be playing concerts in Japan from June 30 to July 2 of 1966, and Broccoli was able to make a verbal agreement with Brian Epstein to include part of the Beatles concert in the show. The scene was filmed in pre-production for "You Only Live Twice", but Lennon's "Christ" statement fiasco in August of '66 had Broccoli worried. The scene was re-shot in January of '67 to show James Bond at a Sumo wrestling match.
And now, for the first time, you can view the intended original scene.
