"The Beatles Movie Medley" is a compilation of snippets from various Beatles songs. It remains the only Beatles single not released on CD. The single peaked at #12 on the Billboard Hot 100, and #10 on the British charts in 1982. The songs were chosen from the four Beatles movies ("A Hard Day's Night", "Help!", "Yellow Submarine", and "Let It Be") and the TV special, "Magical Mystery Tour". The songs included in the medley are "Magical Mystery Tour", "All You Need Is Love", "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away", "I Should Have Known Better", "A Hard Day's Night", "Ticket to Ride", and "Get Back".

Capitol Records first issued the single in conjunction with the album "Reel Music" and was inspired by the success of the "Stars On 45 Medley", a recording which included numerous Beatles songs sung by a John Lennon soundalike. The song was released in the US as Capitol B-5107.

Parlophone Records initially refused to issue the single in the UK, regarding the medley as "tacky". But after the import demand for the U.S. release grew, it was finally issued as Parlophone R6055. The original flip side was an interview with the Beatles about the making of the movie "A Hard Day's Night". Later, it came out with "I'm Happy Just to Dance with You." The single with the former flip side is considered quite rare and valuable.
