Why did this Scott Mantz-in-Liverpool Facebook photo weird me out like it did? (He’s attending Universal’s press junket for Danny Boyle and Richard Curtis‘s Yesterday, which opens in late June.) I guess it’s because I’m not accustomed to thinking of the Beatles as a quartet of 475-pound, Richard Kiel-sized giants. Plus they just look weird alongside Little Mantz. Tribute statues can be larger than life if they’re elevated a few feet off the ground on a marble or iron pedestal, but if they’re planted alongside pedestrians they should be life-sized. As in “yeah, it’s us but we’re no different than anyone else.” Except creatively, that is, and to some extent spiritually, I suppose. The Beatles were/are mythic figures who cast a giant shadow, but this is a crude way of putting it.
