Description

    A Hard Day's Night (United Artists, 1964) One Sheet (27" X 41"). In February 1964, after taking Great Britain by storm, the Beatles crossed the Atlantic to America and ended up conquering the world. United Artists was extremely anxious to cash in on their huge popularity, so they hired Richard Lester to direct the Fab Four in something -- anything! -- that would use the group to their best advantage. Fortunately, Lester and screenwriter Alun Owen came up with the best rock and roll film ever made. With no real plot, the film is a heightened look at a day-and-a-half in the life of the Beatles. John, Paul, George and Ringo (and Paul's "very clean" grandfather) cavort and pun while on the run from screaming fans. ("So far I've been in a train and a room, a car and a room, and a room and a room.") In the background are some soon-to-be well known faces, including director Lester, singer Phil Collins and George's first wife, Pattie Boyd. This very nice one sheet has the classic images of the Beatles (from the eyes up) and cartoon art of female fans bouncing around them. Tape has been removed from the back of the poster, around the edges. Some light stains from the tape show through. One small edge tear, one tiny edge stain and slight fold separation at the crossfolds. A very clean one sheet from the best of the Beatles. Very Fine.
