John Lennon: “A Hard Day’s Night”

How it looked and sounded when it all began.  The movie was supposed to be a bit of exploitative ephemera — a quick cash-in before the fad passed, but it never did.  There are undoubtedly many millions of people who still feel the thrill at the sound of that opening chord. . .

Today is John Lennon‘s 70th birthday.

Since this is our regular Saturday Night at the Movies spot, A Hard Day’s Night seems an appropriate way to celebrate.  I’m glad to say that both the video and the sound are of excellent quality.
