Swirsky started filming the people as they told their Beatles stories and he started to solicit interviews from The Beatles contemporaries and a lot of them responded and were interviewed. Swirsky's "Beatles Stories" captures the stories of Beatles assistant's, fans, neighbors, business associates, former girlfriends and some of the more famous who had encounters with The Beatles. Some of the more famous interviewee's include Henry Winkler, Jon Voight, Brian Wilson (who had a grand rivalry with The Beatles), George Martin, just to name a few.
A lot of the stories are very personal stories and are quite heartfelt accounts of encounters with The Beatles, it's especially interesting to see the celebrities interviewed who become fans in the telling of their meeting with The Beatles, some of the cooler ones are Henry Winkler, and Susanna Hoffs (who still seems to get starstruck at the telling of the story). Trying not too much to fall into reviewers clichés some of the stories will make you laugh, cry and all emotions in-between, these stories are genuine and even though the people know their being interviewed are very candid and stripped of artifice, you'll find yourself moved by some of the stories, at the very least you'll be entertained.
"Beatles Stories" isn't necessarily for the hardcore Beatles fan either, a casual fan, like myself, will find the interviews interesting and the interviewees aren't arcane figures from The Beatles history, that even if you don't know who they are through their stories you'll discover who they are and where they fit in The Beatles story.
