The official Instagram account dedicated toThe Beatles legend John Lennon posted the photos of the 50-year-old interview he and Yoko Ono joined which reminded the iconic scene where John appeared on the Forrest Gump movie.

As you might remember, the late Beatles icon John Lennon and Yoko Ono joined an interview on The Dick Cavett Show on September 8, 1971. Only a day later, Lennon released the best-selling single of his solo career, ‘Imagine.’

The Beatles star’s appearance also became a historic moment when his previous footage was inserted in the 1994 film ‘Forrest Gump‘. During the famous scene of the film, Forrest Gump, played by Tom Hanks, joins an interview with Dick Cavett along with John Lennon. Years after his death, the filmmakers inserted Tom Hanks into the old footage of John’s interview on the Dick Cavett show, which gave the fans one more chance to see the iconic musician on screen.

Recently, John Lennon’s official Instagram account shared the rare photos of Lennon and Yoko Ono on The Dick Cavett Show as well as an exclusive interview with Dick Cavett revealing what really happened behind the scenes of the show 50 years ago.

According to Dick Cavett, John and Yoko had just completed shooting ‘a dream sequence‘ for their ‘Imagine’ film and they asked Dick to appear in the film too. Apparently, before the show, the filmed the ‘whispering and the door opening sequences‘ with the contributions of Dick Cavett.

Furthermore, Cavett mentioned that John Lennon’s impression of David Frost by saying ‘Dick, what’s your definition of loooove? with a funny accent was actually his favorite moment on the show.

Here’s how David Cavett recalled the 50-year-old interview he welcomed John Lennon and Yoko Ono:

“John & Yoko On The Dick Cavett Show, 8 September 1971

Dick Cavett: John told me that they had just finished filming a dream sequence with Yoko and Fred Astaire, who they had collared in the lobby. John pulled out his 16mm camera and asked me if I would mind appearing in their film too, so we filmed the whispering and the door opening sequences from Imagine, which was fun. It was a wonderful day. And of course, as we know, they did do the TV show.

One of my favorite moments in the show is when John suddenly said (in a funny accent), ‘Dick, what’s your definition of loooove?’ That was Frosty’s favorite game to spring upon people. Some were mystified by it. It is fair to say that my opinion of David Frost made me laugh heartily.
