A very interesting clip that dates to November 12, 1963. On this day the Beatles were scheduled to perform at the Guildhall, Portsmouth, England. However, Paul was suffering from stomach flu and the concert had to be cancelled.

As you can see in this clip (filmed backstage at the Guildhall for the Southern Television show "Day By Day"), Paul gets more and more uneasy as the interview goes on. Towards the end of the interview John notices that there is somethng wrong with Paul and tries to make some kind of contact with him.

This is lovely. I love the way John seems so concerned about Paul. And my God, even though he was ill, Paul looks more beautiful than ever here.

John keeps looking at Paul to check if hes alright, so sweet. The two of them were really really close. I feel sorry for Paul, you can see he doesn't want to be there, the way he keeps looking down or around

You know, I watched this about HUNDREDS of times and I find it very odd that John just randomly comments Ringo on his scarf. I wonder if its just an excuse to look at Paul some more. :( I think Paul knows that John is worried because he just keeps looking away and doesn't want to keep worrying him John noticed, so he looks around, and sees Ringo's scarf so he just keeps secretly looking at Paul so he doesn't make him uncomfortable worrying about him. The poor gorgeous baby. :( John was such a sweetheart despite being known as the "bold" Beatle he is such a wonderful friend :3

I feel bad for Paul. Poor thing's sick and probably didn't want to be interviewed. It's sweet that John keeps looking at him, concerned for him. I like their friendship. They're just cute! All four of them! I like Paul, though! =) thank you!

Please stop bringing 'McLennon' into this, they were friends, John was showing concern for his friend who was feeling ill, that's it. There's nothing romantic or sexual about it so please desist. Poor Paul, though. Having to do interviews and crap while feeling sick would he miserable. John was rightfully concerned.

Poor Paul! He obviously wasn't feeling well with the flu he had. I think it's so sweet how John is concerned about him. Paul just looks so miserable...poor guy.
