Movie Summary

Director:
Richard Lester
Released:
1964
Rating:
Not Available

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 slapstick versions of themselves, captured the astonishing period when they officially became the singular, irreverent idols of their generation and changed popular music forever. Directed with flamboyant, anything-goes verve and inventiveness by Richard Lester and featuring a slew of famous songs, including the title track, "Can't Buy Me Love," "I Should Have Known Better," and "If I Fell," A Hard Day's Night is one of the most deliriously entertaining movies of its era.

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • United Artists signed the Beatles for their film debut before their hugely successful first US tour (with its attendant TV appearances). Its chiefs told producer Walter Shenson that they would like him to put together a movie cheaply and quickly, as they did not expect the Beatles would last long as a pop music phenomenon. A Hard Day's Night was produced for well under £200,000 and was filmed very quickly; post-production work was similarly rapid. The film made over ten times its budget just in the United States, and broke box-office records all over Europe.
