Movie Summary

Director:
Richard Lester
Released:
1965
Rating:
Not Available

In their second feature (also directed by Richard Lester, who launched them in films with the massive hit A Hard Day's Night), the Beatles aim for a mix of wild, way-out surrealist comedy and lots of classic pop music, with songs like Ticket To Ride, I Need You and, of course, the title-number. The plot? Well, as far as anyone can tell, it involves Ringo finding himself a target for human sacirifice at the hands of a mysterious Eastern death-cult and the rest of the band must try to protect him from it. But don't pay too much attention to that....

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Although this movie was a big box-office success and was critically praised, the Beatles themselves did not greatly like it and later claimed that they had been "guest stars in their own film". There were strong disagreements about future film projects; their third and final film under their three-film deal with United Artists was the documentary Let It Be in 1970.

    • During shooting, this film was known by the working title Eight Arms To Hold You.

    • This was the second film to feature the Beatles and was released almost exactly a year after their first, A Hard Day's Night. It cost almost three times as much as the earlier film, with a budget of about half a million pounds; however, its box-office take was not substantially larger.
