October 22, 1967
Elvis began with the production for his new and final MGM movie called Chautauqua. The Colonel was afraid this title would give difficulties with the advertisements so it was changed into The Trouble With Girls (and how to get into it).
The rehearsals started at 11.00 a.m.
Paul McCartney publicly denied rumors that he was dead. The story was actually started as a prank by Fred La Bour, a sports and arts writer for the student paper, The Michigan Daily at the University of Michigan.

It was announced that, “The Beatles were now bigger than The Beatles”. The statement was based on sales so far this year, having sold 6,000,000 albums from their back catalogue and a combined total of 13,000,000 copies of ‘The Beatles Anthology 1’ and ‘The Beatles Anthology 2’. With the release of ‘The Beatles Anthology 3’ a week away, it was anticipated that total Beatles album sales for 1996 would exceed 20 million. A poll showed 41 percent of sales were to teenagers who were not born when The Beatles officially called it quits in 1970.
