About this Item

The Beatles "A HARD DAY'S NIGHT" Hollywood: United Artists, (c. 1964). Original vintage hand-tinted double-weight still photograph used to produce promotional A HARD DAY'S NIGHT U. S. release Lobby Card #10. This high-resolution double-weight flat matte 8" x 10" production photo was printed in black and white in preparation for the creation of the now familiar 11" x 14" promotional color lobby card then hand-tinted; registration marks and color directions written in grease pencil can be seen on the photo itself. This lobby card artwork showcases one of the more detailed of the lobby cards in the set, featuring Paul McCartney in disguise (hiding from screaming Beatles fans) accompanied by Wilfred Brambell who plays his creepy trouble-making grandpa. In Very Good condition, lightly worn. The reverse is a bit aged and smudged. The film A HARD DAY'S NIGHT was directed in 1964 by Richard Lester and was rather a low budget operation, shot in black-and-white, and used a zany cinema-verite style to showcase a few days in the life of Beatlemania. At the time it was meant to be the equivalent of a promotional film, few anticipated that the film would end up being acclaimed a comedy classic. For roughly the same price as a fine example of the original lobby card itself, you can own the original art that made it. Ex- Heritage Poster Auction #601 (March 2004).
