A Hard Day’s Night, despite its age, is still a delight to watch and has proven itself to be a rock-and-roll movie classic.
A Hard Day’s Night is a 1964 British black-and-white comedy film directed by Richard Lester and starring the Beatles—John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr—during the height of Beatlemania. It was written by Alun Owen and originally released by United Artists. Working within a tight $500,000 budget, director Richard Lester turned out A Hard Day’s Night in a fast 6 1/2 weeks; the picture was in the theaters three months after shooting commenced.
The film portrays an exhilarating study of a “typical” 36 hours in the lives of the Fab Four and includes the songs “I Should Have Known Better,” “And I Love Her,” “Tell Me Why,” “If I Fell,” “Can’t Buy Me Love,” and the title song.
The film is credited as being one of the most influential musical films of all time, inspiring numerous spy films, the Monkees’ television show and pop music videos. It was rated by Time magazine as one of the all-time great 100 films.
