George and Patti
George Harrison and his future wife Pattie Boyd met on the set of A Hard Day’s Night in which she was cast by Lester as a schoolgirl fan.
She was then “semi-engaged” to a photographer, Eric Swayne, whom she had dated for about a year, and out of loyalty declined Harrison’s first invitation for a date. According to Boyd, one of the first things Harrison said to her on the film set was, “Will you marry me? Well, if you won’t marry me, will you have dinner with me tonight?”
Several days later, when Boyd was recalled for another day’s work on the film, Harrison asked her out again and she accepted, having ended her relationship with Swayne. Their first date was at the Garrick Club (a private gentlemen’s club), in Covent Garden, in the company of Brian Epstein, who managed Harrison and the other Beatles.
