Richard Lester donates first draft of Beatles films

Richard Lester has donated more than 60 boxes of letters, scripts, notes and photographs documenting his 40 year career, to the BFI National Archive.

Lester’s collection also includes letters from Audrey Hepburn, Charlton Heston, Raquel Welch and Spike Milligan.

MUP published a full analysis of Richard Lester’s career earlier this year.
