Movie Info

Meet the Beatles! Just one month after they exploded onto the U.S. scene with their Ed Sullivan Show appearance, John, Paul, George, and Ringo began working on a project that would bring their revolutionary talent to the big screen. A Hard Day's Night, in which the bandmates play wily, exuberant versions of themselves, captured the astonishing moment when they officially became the singular, irreverent idols of their generation and changed music forever. Directed with raucous, anything-goes verve by Richard Lester and featuring a slew of iconic pop anthems, including the title track, "Can't Buy Me Love," "I Should Have Known Better," and "If I Fell," A Hard Day's Night, which reconceived the movie musical and exerted an incalculable influence on the music video, is one of the most deliriously entertaining movies of all time.

Critic Reviews for A Hard Day's Night - 50th Anniversary

All Critics (3)

It doesn't so much begin as explode into existence, that ringing first chord shattering the quiet of the theater as the Beatles run towards the camera. TIt rarely backs down from this exuberant energy, barreling ahead with a constant cartoonish smile.

It's more than a movie; it's a key artifact (minus must or muss) of a cultural phenomenon.

An extraordinary feat of digital salvage that brings us as close to that long-vanished era as we're likely to come any time soon.

Audience Reviews for A Hard Day's Night - 50th Anniversary

I remember watching this on TV when I was a kid. It was great to see this re-release and remastered version. It was the Beatle's first movie and extremely well-down.
