When John Lennon uses his toilet, uber-fans Ian and Digby hatch a plan to sell their idol's unflushed poo. Sounds smelly.

A short film about the crassness of the cult of celebrity.

“Brilliant. Extremely charming, great comic timing and pace.”

“This is a fun script.. it’s amusing …- and works really well. Characters work well. Dialogue is very good – nice one! The arena works well and feels authentic.”


Your film "John Lennon's Turd" is the ‘Official Selection’ to represent your Country at the Opening Night of the 10th Annual Toronto ReelHeART International Film Festival in the “Shorts Heard Around The World” Program.

Opening Night Film program

In 1969
..on December 15th John Lennon played a concert at the Lyceum in London. The last time he played with George Harrison.
following morning he and Yoko travelled to Toronto for a meeting with the Prime Minister of Canada to discuss World Peace.

What if ?

..on the way  …he was caught short .. it had been a mad rush since the concert ..and he didn’t have time to go to the loo..
So he stops the Rolls Royce at a random house.   ..asks the owner to use the toilet.   …but the flush isn’t working.   …and the owner is left with John Lennon’s turd..

A true story

Based on a true story, told me back in the sixties by a friend who was visited by a Beatle, who left behind an unflushed poo …which he kept unflushed for days.  :-)   ..until his Mum insisted.
