Footnotes

  • Provenance: Cliff Richardson, special effects.

    The 'bladed' umbrella appears early in the film, in the scene with Clang sharpening it on his motorised tinker's tricycle outide the Beatles' homes. Clang and one of his henchmen use the 'walkie-talkie' examples during their night-time attempt to steal the sacred ring from Ringo's finger.

    Please note that the original metal 'blade' is available but has been removed and replaced with a dummy.
