Ringo Starr

Fisher co-starred in the 1978 NBC TV movie Ringo, a vanity project starring the Funny Beatle as both a lightly fictionalized version of himself, and his entirely fictionalized half-brother, named “Ognir Rrats.” Fisher appeared as Marquine, girlfriend of Ognir, who sings a duet of Ringo Starr’s Hot 100-topping version of “You’re Sixteen” in one of the movie’s more fantastical sequences. “Carrie Fisher was a big fan of Ringo’s, and couldn’t wait to do it,” director Jeff Margolis told writer Michael Seth Starr (no relation) in his 2015 biography Ringo: With a Little Help.
