VIDEO: Former U.S. Beatle’s Manager Praises New John Lennon Film GENIUS

"GENIUS will open your eyes," according to Ken Mansfield, and if anyone could speak with authority about the Beatles, it is someone who was a member of their inner sanctum, and was on top of the Apple building in London as they performed for the last time. The Beatles turned to Ken Mansfield to run their record division and named him the U.S. Manager of Apple Records beginning in 1968. Mansfield knew the real John Lennon. "And that's who we have portrayed in 'Genius'-the real John Lennon." So says award-winning Producer of the Los Angeles-based film company, Ray Comfort. Check out the trailer for the film below!

Comfort said, "It has twists and turns that you don't expect. Genius shows another unheard of side of John Lennon and that will certainly 'open your eyes,' as Ken Mansfield so aptly said." The movie was released for free viewing on to coincide with the December 8th, anniversary of the death of John Lennon and in the first two days received more than 50,000 YouTube views. Comments have been very positive: "WOW! A whole new light to the story of John Lennon." "This video is so amazing!!!" "ACE! JUST ACE! What an excellent presentation." "Wow. Just…wow."

Genius has been called a "chilling" movie on the life and tragic murder of John Lennon. Comfort added, "It's chilling because it reveals what people will do for money. There are ordinary people out there who would kill you. All they need is the right money and the belief that they won't get caught."
