Denis O’Dell (1923 – December 30, 2021) was a British film producer, best known for his work on films featuring The Beatles, including “Magical Mystery Tour” and “A Hard Day’s Night”.

On “You Know My Name (Look Up the Number)”, one of the last songs the Beatles recorded, John Lennon introduces Paul McCartney as a lounge singer called “Denis O’Bell”.

Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Denis O’Dell, who has passed away. Denis first worked with The Beatles on the film A Hard Day’s Night as associate producer, but he continued to work with the band as producer of Magical Mystery Tour, How I Won The War (with John), and became Head of Apple Films in 1968. Denis was the supervising producer of the 3 week shoot in January 1969 which became the source material for the recent Get Back trilogy.
