A Hard Day's Night

Miramax Films; Directed by Richard Lester
Black and White; Rated G; 85 minutes; 1964

A re-release of the 1964 classic musical comedy about four shaggy-haired lads from Liverpool, this is a playful day-in-the-life look at the emerging rock stars: John, Paul, George, and Ringo. Pursued by hordes of shrieking girls caught up in Beatlemania, they dash in and out of railways, through London streets, and into a TV recording studio. With concert footage of The Beatles performing "She Loves You," this movie survives as an indelible portrait of a particular time.


"The best rock-n-roll movie ever!"

"One of the great life-affirming landmarks of the movies!"
-- Roger Ebert
