"The Citizen Kane of juke box movies" -- Film historian Andrew Sarris.

  • Examines the culture, merchandising and influence of the movie.
Go behind the scenes with the ultimate film guides and get the bigger picture. A Hard Day's Night follows the Beatles through a day of "Beatlemania", a mixture of slapstick comedy, surrealism and simple satire has ensured its classic film status. Richard Lester created the film with the intention of cashing in on the success of the young stars and as a method of releasing a profitable soundtrack album. Little did he know that some years later he would be credited with an award from MTV for his part in what many see as the first steps of the popular music video. With this book fans will understand how Lester's film defined the era and captures early 60's Britain in the throws of social and musical change. It considers what the Beatles represented and how much of its success was based on the fact that the film and the group themselves were something of a cultural phenomenon. It explores the style of the film, explains cinematic terminology, offers a bibliography and lists the full cast and crew. Learn what the Beatles thought of their performance and how did the public responded. Accessible to the general fan, as well as film students or critics, Lorraine Rolston and Andy Murray offer insight and background to a cult classic.

Lorraine Rolston is a former film reviewer and Manchester's City Life Magazine and is the Cinema Education Officer as Cornerhouse in Manchester.

Andy Murray is also with Cornerhouse in Manchester.
