Pattie Boyd Interview and book signing follows film -Book by former wife of Beatle describes being an inspiration STORY AND PHOTOS COURTESY OF THE CATALINA ISLAND MUSEUM A popular model in 1960s London, Pattie Boyd was offered a small role in "A Hard Day's Night" and it changed the course of her life forever. On Sunday, July 6, the Catalina Island Museum will screen the Beatles' hit movie followed by an exclusive interview with Boyd in which she will share her memories of acting in the film, meeting her first husband George Harrison on set and much more. Following the interview Boyd will sign her New York Times best- Selling autobiography, "Wonderful Tonight: George Harrison, Eric Clapton and Me?' It took Boyd nearly forty years to break her silence about her relationship with not one, but two of the greatest musicians in rock 'n' roll history. She was the inspi- ration for George Harrison's song "Something" and Eric Clapton's "Layla" and "Wonderful Tonight?' Her book debuted at the top of the New York Times Best Seller list in 2007 receiving rave reviews. The New York Times said: "The appeal of Wonderful Tonight is as self-evident as the seem- ingly simple but brash opening cord of "A Hard Day's Night"... a charming, lively and seductive book, and like all good memoirs it also works as a cultural history ... The prose is clear and unpre- tentious, and although she writes candidly about the pain her hus- bands' infidelities caused her... this isn't a bitter tell-all. There's an aura of sweetness around Boyd's approach?' The review by The London Sunday Times described it this way: "There are so many won- derful stories in Pattie Boyd's life: Falling in love with a Beatle. Falling in love with another famous rock star, Eric Clapton, and being serenaded with 'Wonderful Tonight' ... But there is much that is excruciating in her life story. Boyd was taught by her parents that she didn't deserve to be loved; AqROYD The California DMV will conduct business in the City of Avalon July 8 - 10, 2014 Appointments are available and may be scheduled at City Hall California driver license and identification card applications will be processed.
