Yesterday

Question: When Jack plays Let It Be the second line refers to "Mother Mary." Wouldn't that seem odd to an Indian family?

Answer: Considering there are close to 20 million Catholics in India and Jack seems to be pretty assimilated into English culture (his name is Jack after all), it probably wouldn't seem that remarkable.

Question: If there was no Beatles, where did the toy yellow submarine come from?

Answer: Believe it or not, the Beatles did not invent the idea that a submarine could be yellow, and yellow toy submarines were sold for children to play with.

Answer: It is just a toy submarine molded or repainted in yellow. Only the 'stalker' fans know the reference to the Beatles song.

Answer: I think it was so those 2 people that knew of the Beatles could prove they knew the Beatles song, since presumably that was a song Jack forgot about.

Continuity mistake: During the interview, while sitting, his striped pants are unzipped for a few cuts, then they are zipped in later shots.

Trivia: In the talk show dream sequence, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr are introduced, and there is a shot of their two pairs of feet, one of which is barefoot. This is a reference to the cover of the album Abbey Road in which Paul is the only Beatle barefoot.
