The comedy musical, A Hard Day's Night, followed The Beatles on their way from Liverpool to London for a live television broadcast. To add comic complications, they must rescue Paul's eccentric grandfather from numerous misadventures and deal with the disappearance of ace-drummer, Ringo Starr, just before the crucial concert. Starring John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, this iconic movie was written by Alun Owen and directed by Richard Lester (Robin and Marion, Superman II).
Made for a paltry $560,000 and grossing $8,000,000 at the box office in its first week of release, A Hard Day's Night delivered one of the highest rates of return of any movie in cinema history. It had its premiere in London on July 6th, 1964, at the height of Beatle-mania.
When Ringo coined the unusual but catchy phrase 'A Hard Day's Night', John and Paul raced to see who could come up with a song to showcase it first. John Lennon was the winner, writing the film's legendary title track in one sitting on the night of April 13th, 1964.
