Spinetti was an established British film star in 1963 when he agreed to make a movie with a pop group called the Beatles and who became famous ever after as the only person besides the four Beatles to appear in all of their movies — “A Hard Day’s Night,” “Help!” and “Magical Mystery Tour."
Vittorio Georgio Andrea Spinetti was born in Wales, one of six children of a Welsh mother and an Italian immigrant father. He told interviewers that his father had originally planned to immigrate to the United States but had gotten waylaid in Wales by work opportunities. His father eventually opened a small restaurant there
Mr. Spinetti appeared in scores of plays and about 30 other movies, acting alongside stars like Laurence Olivier, Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton and Peter Sellers. He won a Tony Award in 1965. But in the record of 20th-century stage and film history, his modest place in the Beatles’ movie canon pretty much defined him.
