Description & Features+

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 slapstick 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 ("Help!") 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 re-conceived the movie musical and exerted an incalculable influence on the music video, is one of the most deliriously entertaining movies of all time.
DVD Special Features: Presented in Black & White; New 4K digital restoration, approved by director Richard Lester, with two audio options - a monaural soundtrack as well as a newly created 5.1 surround mix supervised by sound producer Giles Martin at Abbey Road Studios; Audio Commentary Featuring Cast and Crew; Featurette: "In Their Own Voices" - A new piece combining 1964 interviews with the Beatles with behind-the-scenes footage and photos; "You Can't Do That: The Making of 'A Hard Day's Night" - A 1994 documentary by producer Walter Shenson including an outtake performance by the Beatles; PLUS: A Booklet Featuring an Essay By Critic Howard Hampton
