Working on the Windy City Parrot website late last night and the movie A Hard Days Night, starring the Beatles came on. I remember going to the Howard movie theater as a sophomore at Sullivan High School in Chicago.
My kinky hair (when I had hair) forced down over my fore head, a turtle neck dickie and bell bottom trousers made me look well, maybe I need to delete that part of the memory.
Anyway, Not really paying attention to the movie on cable but looking up now on then easily following the loose plot . Watching the scene in the bar where Ringo gets himself into trouble (and almost misses the “Big Show”) by throwing darts. The first one lands in a patron’s sandwich. The second dart passes through a bird cage but misses the African Grey parrot.
I’ve tried to do some research on the bird in the scene. No luck. I did find this picture of Ringo with what I think is a Macaw. Tough to tell in the black and white photo.
Any additional information on Ringo and parrots would be welcome. Simple leave a “comment” below.
