  • A Hard Day’s Night

    1964. Great Britain. Directed by Richard Lester. With John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Wilfrid Brambell. Philadelphia native Lester parlayed his experience in zany British television into an opportunity to make the film that, more than any other, captures the ethos of spiritual liberation that threatened—and still threatens—the established order of the Western world. Part Marx Brothers, part Jean-Luc Godard, and all Beatles, the film remains the most entertaining musical comedy this side of Ernst Lubitsch. 90 min.

In the Film exhibition The Sixties: Yanks in Britain
