The Fool with a passport


October 30, 1967 -

Just like Ringo in June 1964, Paul traveled without a passport and got away with it due to being a Beatle.  When he and Mal (and someone else that I can't recall off the top of my head) traveled to Nice, France, to film "The Fool on the Hill" for Magical Mystery Tour, Paul didn't bring anything with him.  No money.  No passport.   And he told the people at customs something along the lines of "You know who I am.  Why do you need to see a passport with my photo on it?"  True enough.   He was let it and filmed "Fool on the Hill," secretly exposing himself to everyone in the process, but that is a story for another time.
