I Met the Walrus: An Animated Film Revisiting a Teenager’s 1969 Interview with John Lennon

It happened 44 years ago. A 14-year-old Beatles fan named Jerry Levitan managed to sneak into John Lennon’s Toronto hotel room and asked for an interview. And he got one. Now, there’s a short animated film that brings that encounter back to life. I Met the Walrus was nominated for the 2008 Academy Award for Animated Short. You’ll know why when you watch it. Another excellent find by Vickie.
