- As a member of the Bonzo Dog Band, 尼尔·尹艾斯 actually had a cameo role in the Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour (1967).
- 尼尔·尹艾斯, Ricky Fataar, and John Halsey regrouped in 1996 to record "Archaeology", their satirical response to The Beatles' "Anthology". It consisted of tunes not used in this movie, rearranged Innes solo songs, and one song penned as a spoof of "Free as a Bird". 艾瑞克·爱都 didn't take part; the album's press materials explained that Dirk McQuickly had quit the music business to become a comedian.
- In his "memoir" available on the DVD, 艾瑞克·爱都 mentions what The Beatles thought of the movie. According to Idle, 乔治·哈里逊 was very supportive and encouraged him. 保罗·麦卡特尼 disapproved at first, but relented when he learned that Idle grew up near Liverpool; his wife Linda always loved it. 林哥·斯塔尔 liked the happier scenes, but felt the scenes that mimicked sadder times hit too close. 约翰·列侬 (along with 小野洋子) adored it and refused to return the videotape and soundtrack he was given for approval. Lennon also told 尼尔·尹艾斯 that "Get Up and Go" was too similar to "Get Back", and to be careful not to be sued by ATV Music, owners of the Beatles catalogue's copyright at the time. The song was consequently omitted from the 1978 vinyl LP soundtrack.
