A HARD DAY'S NIGHT (1964)

The exciting early days of the fab four are documented in this hyperbolic exploration of American "Beatlemania." As the quartet makes their mark on the American music scene, a precarious "Grandfather" threatens to stir things up. Meanwhile all of America screams "More. More. MORE," as each successive performance creates a "Beatles" craze that has yet to be surpassed by many a wannabe rock bands.

The cast includes: John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Wilfrid Bozambell, and Victor Spinetti.

Directed by Richard Lester.

A Hard Day's Night tells the fictional story of the trials, thrills, hardships of the fab four and recreates the excitement of the Beatle's early days.

This black and white classic is a well-paced, witty and comedic, 90 minute story of their adventures, and experiences that surround a T'V show appearance. Along for the ride is Paul's grandfather (Wilfrid Bozambell), who is described as "being clean," as "being a king mixer" and a lady's man, who likes to become engaged, which often makes him the target of breech of promise suits. One knows that this character will cause mischief along the way. The chemistry, camaraderie and humor among the Beatles, and supporting actors, plus a clever, humorous script makes this film very entertaining and enlightens us by giving a glimpse of the Beatles' personalities as well.

Their music is cleverly weaved in and out of the story plot, so the whole film flows along nicely."Having viewed this award winning classic, one can hardly dispute that this film established the format for the musical videos that today are standard visual vehicles for pop and rock artists."

Over the years, A Hard Day's Night holds up very well, and entertains as much as it did when it was made. Some find it "a time tripping event" that brings to mind the happy innocence of Beatlemania. Others viewing this masterpiece for the first time, will discover a rare treat, a delightful treasure that shines as a unique group showcase film.
