John Lennon's How I Won the War Coming To DVD

(Gibson) John Lennon's only non-Beatles theatrical film is coming, at long last, to DVD. How I Won the War was originally released in 1967 and was directed by A Hard Day's Night director, Richard Lester. Lester also supervised the remastering of the film for the DVD release.

Lennon began filming the black comedy, about a doomed regiment in World War II, just days after wrapping up The Beatles' final tour at San Francisco's Candlestick Park. As if to punctuate this severing from the past, Lennon cut off his Beatle Haircut and began wearing his now-trademark "granny glasses." The film played to middling reviews, but has remained a favorite among Beatles fans, just for the chance to see Lennon in a dramatic (well, comedic), non-Beatle role. His image from the film, incidentally, provided the cover for the first issue of Rolling Stone in November 1967.

How I Won the War will be available on March 20 from the MGM Limited Edition Collection.
