Tom Evans, Maybe Tomorrow Italian promo filmPete Ham, Maybe Tomorrow Italian promo filmRon Griffiths and Mike Gibbins, Maybe Tomorrow Italian promo film
This black & white promotional film was shot in the evening by an Italian film company (produced by Marco Montaldi) in the basement of the Apple offices at 3 Savile Row in London while the studio was under construction. During the film, you can even see workers painting the walls behind Mike Gibbins! It's interesting to note that all four members are never shown all in one shot at any time in the film. Also appearing with The Iveys (as an observer) is a female employee of the Arthur Howes agency. Also on this date, The Iveys had their photo taken for the "Auntie Ivey" ad for Disc & Music Echo's November 23 issue.

Along with the group miming to "Maybe Tomorrow", there are bits of interviews with the four Iveys members. Most of it is unfortunately buried by Italian narration or the music soundtrack. From what little can be heard, the boys are reciting their personal information.

Here's a transcript of what can be heard in the film:

Tom: "I am Tom Evans. I've been with The Iveys for a year now. I am originally from Liverpool... Initially, we got introduced by a friend of ours called Mal Evans. He's The Beatles' road manager..."

Mike: "...and uh, Tom wrote it..."

Pete: "My name is Pete Ham. I was born in Swansea, South Wales. I'm twenty-one years old..."

Ron: "My name is Ron Griffiths..."
