Imagine: John Lennon is a 1988 documentary film about John Lennon.

John Lennon Imagine Film

Imagine: John Lennon, with its wealth of stock Lennon footage and self-narration, proved to be a well-received film. Bridging his two musical phases together as a member of The Beatles and as a solo artiste, Imagine: John Lennon is a career-spanning collection of Lennon's many musical highlights. In addition, there are a couple of heretofore unreleased recordings: an acoustic demo of "Real Love" taped in 1979 (an alternate recording of which would be finished by The Beatles for 1996's Anthology 2) and a rehearsal take of "Imagine" in mid-1971 before the final take was captured.

In addition to the archive footage of John it also includes new interviews with Mimi Smith, Cynthia Lennon, Yoko Ono, May Pang, Julian Lennon, and Sean Lennon.

The project arrived at a timely juncture and was an attempt at thwarting the then-released The Lives of John Lennon by Albert Goldman, a controversial and reputation-tarnishing book which many dismissed as fiction, including Ono and Lennon's close friends.
