Here's a weird doc that you might be hearing about. Desperately Seeking Paul McCartney. It's about a woman who , as a teenage TV reporter, once asked Paul (during the early Beatlemania era) if he had plans on getting married.

His answer: "Only if you'll marry me."

I can see why this response would make interesting dinner party conversation all these years later, but it seems weird that the lady, who is married (not to Paul McCartney), and has kids, is obsessed with that brief moment in time, which Paul probably meant as either a joke or a flirty come-on. Anyway, the documentary follows her trying to come to terms with this brief televised interaction from four decades ago, and trying to meet up with Paul again. I don't think she's a stalker, but still, it's a bit weird.
