There can’t be many people whose creative links with the Beatles are as strong as the actor Victor Spinetti.

Spinetti, who died yesterday aged 82, was a fine actor from Wales.

He appeared in the Fab Four’s films ‘A Hard Day’s Night’ and ‘Help’ and the tv special ‘Magical Mystery Tour.’

So he was clearly somebody that they felt comfortable with and wanted around.

That must have been a nice feeling.

Inevitably his Beatles links have been prominent in obits and tributes to him.

But you don’t keep working in the acting profession as he did all his life without a great deal of talent and versatility.

Fine actor, and with a unique part in popular music history.
