That other Apple, the one founded by The Beatles in 1968 to handle their mutual business interests following the breakup of the band, is joining the 50th anniversary celebrations of Beatlemania with plans to release a documentary about the group’s touring years (1963-1966). The film, to be produced by Apple Corps and White Horse Pictures, will be directed by Ron Howard (Splash, Apollo 13, A Beautiful Mind, Rush). Britain’s Screen magazine reported that the film will focus on The Beatles’ journey from Liverpool’s Cavern Club to their gigs in Hamburg to their last public performance at Candlestick Park in San Francisco in 1966. In a statement, Howard said, "I am excited and honored to be working with Apple and the White Horse team on this astounding story of these four young men who stormed the world in 1964. Their impact on popular culture and the human experience cannot be exaggerated."
