Making it to the top wasn\u2019t exclusively about pumping out new hits and performing stellar concerts, even for the Beatles. It also came with some obligatory projects, stunts, and gigs that left something to be desired. One stood out to John Lennon for some time as simple \u201chumiliation.\u201d In the years of the Beatles\u2019 prominence, it was not uncommon for bands and artists to transcend not just genres but also mediums, participating in movies documenting their rise to fame - and sometimes collapse. Its with this approach Lennon took extreme issue. Timing makes everything into nothing HELP!, from left: Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison, 1965 \/ Everett Collection The Beatles kept one foot in the music industry while also entering the film scene with A Hard Day\u2019s Night (1964), Help! (1965), and Yellow Submarine (1968), among others. It was while filming Help! that the band started expanding their substance horizons, then-recently smoking marijuana with Bob Dylan, a habit that continued into the year. RELATED: George Harrison Of The Beatles Mortgaged His House Just To See A Movie \u201cWe were smoking marijuana for breakfast,\u201d Lennon reflected in the novel All We Are Saying. \u201cWe were well into marijuana, and nobody could communicate with us because we were just glazed eyes, giggling all the time.\u201d That put them in a mindset that might not have been the best for what Lennon would consider a major humiliation. Filming \u2018Help!\u2019 put the band through prolonged humiliation John Lennon found a particular task from HELP! to be very humiliating \/ Everett Collection While filming Help!, young fans would come onto the set, chaperoned with their parents, and the Beatles would have to eagerly greet these eager fans, lest having the press ruin them, according to Far Out. Of the experience, Lennon expressed, \u201cIt was the most humiliating experience for me.\u201d He went on, \u201cLike sitting with the governor of the Bahamas because we were making Help! and being insulted by these f*ckin\u2019 jumped-up middle-class b*tches and bastards who would be commenting on our work and our manners. And I was always drunk, like the typical-whatever it is-insulting them. I couldn\u2019t take it. It hurt me so, I would go insane, swearing at them and whatever.\u201d Lennon concluded, \u201cIt was a f*ckin\u2019 humiliation. One has to completely humiliate oneself to be what The Beatles were, and that\u2019s what I resent. I did it, but I didn\u2019t know. I didn\u2019t foresee that, it just happened bit by bit till this complete craziness is surrounding you.\u201d Does that change how you\u2019ll see the movie, knowing what went through at least one member\u2019s mind at the time? Is that a simple price for fame?
