Back in 1971 I was a 20-year-old travelling around Europe. I met someone in Italy and we decided to hitch-hike to Nice, where we stayed at a hostel. We knew about the festival, and one day another hosteller came back and said John Lennon and Yoko Ono were leaving the next day from Nice airport; that he’d shown a film at Cannes. We hitch-hiked to the airport, and yes, we saw and met Lennon and Ono. For a 20-year-old Beatle fan, it was beyond fab.
