All too often, a performer gets it into their head that now they've reach some margin of fame in a band, they can also act! Some make the leap ok like Will Smith, others like Vanilla Ice are best left forgotten.

|George Harrison||Electronic Music Documentary||I was earning my college degree in computer + info science. As a pre-rec for taking classes in computer art, movie making and sound audio manipulating we had to take a course in Art + Music of the Post WWII era. George Harrison of the Beatles narrated a film describing how he and his mates created their records from scratch and how today with computer technology it's mostly "push button, a little too easy". Well, we need to know how it's been done before so we can utilize the technology today. After all, the Beatles were the first to utilize looping and backwards messages (whoooooo, Lord it's the Devil - NOT ; ) ). Also, George released "Wonderwall", an album marrying electronics and Asian instruments (did somebody bring up Peter Gabriel?) and he issued "Electronic Sound" which featured just himself and a synthesizer. He pioneered in these innovations so that makes him as good a narrator for this docu as anyone. Still, everyone seems to think he's just a guit-tahr man. - Beatle Baby|
|George Harrison||Shanghai Surprise||Surprise! George plays a cameo role as a pub rocker. Surprise! He saved some songs that weren't used in this flick and put them on the excellent 1987 "Cloud 9" CD. Surprise! George said that working with Sean Penn was no hassel but Madonna was conceited, difficult to work with and self-important. Surprise! The movie did stink big time (it starred Madonna in it - what more needs to be said?). - George is Fab|
