We discuss politics, sports and a few extras!

It didn’t have much of a plot but “A Hard Day’s Night” was a smash!

It was August 1964 and The Beatles were suddenly movie stars!  The movie, “A hard day’s night“, was released in the UK in July and in the US in August.

As someone said, the movie didn’t have much of a plot but lots of people paid to see it.   The theaters were full from coast to coast.

The plot was sort of like a day in the life of the group.    We saw The Beatles running around from concerts to studios to interviews……there was one funny old man (Wilfrid Brambell) playing Paul’s grandfather.

In retrospect, the movie was very funny.  It was full of crazy comedy and some great dialogue that sounds better with age.

I liked it, and continue to like it a lot!

The soundtrack was great, such as the title song “A hard day’s night” also released as a 45 with “I should have known better” as the B-side.   There were two great ballads:   “And I love her” plus the beautiful “If I fell“.

We remember that there were two LP’s, one for the US and the other for the UK.   The US version had several George Martin instrumentals, such as “This boy:  Ringo’s ‘s theme“.
