A Hard Day's Night$11
In celebration of its 50th anniversary, the landmark film debut of The Beatles has undergone a 4K digital restoration and a 5.1 Surround soundtrack mix. Just one month after they exploded onto the U.S. scene with their appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show, John, Paul, George and Ringo began the project that would bring their revolutionary talent to the big screen. Directed with raucous, anything-goes verve by Richard Lester, the film captured the astonishing moment when they became the singular, irreverent idols of their generation and changed music forever. A Hard Day's Night reconceived the movie musical and exerted an incalculable influence on the music video, and it remains one of the most deliriously entertaining movies of all time. With Wilfrid Brambell, Victor Spinetti. Producer: Walter Shenson. Writer: Alun Owen. Director: Richard Lester. (UK 1964) 87 min.
