Film Series: A Hard Day’s Night

1964. UK. Dir: Richard Lester. With The Beatles, Wilfrid Brambell. 87 min.

 

It’s a day – well, more like a week – in the life of The Beatles: dodging mobs of screaming fans, messing with interviewers, looking after Paul’s treacherous (but clean!) grandfather, and chasing down a runaway Ringo. Hilarious shenanigans and beloved songs abound in the Fab Four’s screen debut, the film that effectively invented the modern music video.
