About this movie

Meet the Beatles! Just one month after they exploded onto the U.S. scene with their Ed Sullivan Show appearance, John, Paul, George, and Ringo began working on a project that would bring their revolutionary talent to the big screen. A Hard Day’s Night, in which the bandmates play cheeky comic versions of themselves, captured the astonishing moment when they officially became the singular, irreverent idols of their generation and changed music forever. Directed with raucous, anything-goes verve by Richard Lester and featuring a slew of iconic pop anthems, including the title track, “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “I Should Have Known Better,” and “If I Fell,” A Hard Day’s Night, which reconceived the movie musical and exerted an incalculable influence on the music video, is one of the most deliriously entertaining movies of all time.

I have been a big Beatles fan ever since the beginning so at the age of 7 when I dragged my poor mother into the movie theater with me , I remember her laughing hard at jokes I didn't even understand at that age such as the reference to the large bosomed lady at the casino being a good swimmer, although even she did not get the joke when John put the Pepsi up to his nose and sniffed.. pretty naughty for the early sixties I think. Makes me laugh every single time.
