George vs. Food.

I’ve noticed for years that there seems to be a large amount of photos of George caught snacking. I’m trying to avoid showing photos of regular sit-down meals with the other Beatles; just ones in which he’s eating on his own. And I still wonder if you could find as many with the other Boys.
Here’s just a tiny sampling of what I have:


Back in his non-vegetarian days, George scarfs down a hot dog in a studio canteen.


Looks like maybe an in-studio breakfast here, with toast and jam. Yum!


And of course, in A Hard Day’s Night, he munched that roll all through the first scene in the train compartment. Wonder if it took several takes,and he ended up completely stuffed?


Here, George looks pretty interested in that popcorn. Look out, boys!(I included that one because of that predatory look on his face…Want popcorn!)

I seem to recall an amusing anecdote from George himself in his autobiography about being able to put away two cheeseburgers and several pints of beer when he was younger.Yet in her book, Pattie Boyd reminisces that George was never hungry and never ate much of anything. I wonder how much she truly remembers. I mean, the Beatles themselves have outwardly said they can’t remember half of what gets hashed and re-hashed in the books! 🙂

    I don’t want to ruin any of the fun but smoking actually reduces your appetite. It sometimes make you overeat because you’ve eaten so little throughout the day.
