Beatles Stories 
DVD ($19.95)

October 2012 marks the 50th anniversary of the release of John, Paul, George and Ringo’s first single, “Love Me Do.” This well-timed documentary captures the magic of Beatlemania with the reflections of dozens of people, both famous and not-so-famous, whose paths intersected at some point with the Fab Four, from neighbors, tour mates and former girlfriends to fellow celebrities, including musicians Art Garfunkel, Jackie DeShannon, Graham Nash, Davy Jones of The Monkees, Beach Boy Brian Wilson, Peter Noone of Herman’s Hermits and Susanna Hoffs of The Bangles, actors Henry Winkler, Sir Ben Kingsley and Jon Voight, and a Beatle-riffic spectrum of other folks. It’s a fascinating look at The Beatles from a roundup of individuals fortunate enough to have personally collected some of their stardust.
