I wish! The episode "A Stop at Willoughby" comes to mind: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0734550/       ;D


Oh, he gets to go back to 1888! I would love to see that. I've never seen an episode of this show that hasn't made me go "Wow!" The trouble is I never seem to take the time to watch this or much of anything else I enjoy. Don't ask me why; I'm just weird that way.

The various comments above have convinced me that if you can get to see it on the big screen it'll be worth your effort.

All this just makes me more determined to clear a space in July to see AHDN properly.

That's the proper way to see it.  I saw it in the theater twice on its release in 1964.  And on a big screen, not these small ones you find today in multiplexes.  When I watch it on DVD, it takes me back to how I first saw the film.

Don't miss it this time around!

Looks like Amazon have a better cover now for the DVD. Looks better then the previous one they had a black cover with cartoon like Beatles in different colours. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Hard-Days-Night-Anniversary-Restoration/dp/B00KATQSA2/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1403168181&sr=8-4&keywords=a+hard+days+night+dvd

I've read and heard two reviews of the re-release and it's heartening that both were overwhelming in their enthusiasm.

David Hepworth on his blog and Mark Kermode (both pretty respected commentators in the UK) on the Film Review programme last night.
The consensus was how alive and vibrant the film still appears.

Particularly interesting was Hepworth's comment that, given the considerable price of LPs in the 60s and the comparative cheapness of going to the cinema, the film experience of AHDN was probably shared by more people than the first two albums.

I'd just arrived on a long plane flight to Europe. Got into the hotel and lay back expecting not much on TV to watch. And lo and behold this was on. So that was a bonus. Not sure whether it was just the tv but there seemed to be some skips on the soundtrack here and there.

No it was my 3rd time seeing it at the cinema. The first time I saw it was in 2001 at the same cinema (Cameo Cinema) it was doing a Cinema UK Tour Mum gave me a flyer for it still have it. The following year I saw ut again at The Picturehouse it wasn't doing a Tour then just showed it for one night.

Saw it last night at the National Film Theatre on the South Bank (London).
Always loved AHDN, but enjoyed it more than I ever have before, as did the rest of the audience, many of whom clapped at the end.

I felt particularly warm towards George throughout the whole film, and it was great trying to recognise all the various British actors and actresses who popped up.

In particular, Marianne Stone (the slightly older, attractive journalist who interviews Ringo) must have appeared in about a thousand British films. If it was made in the 50s through to the early 1970s, and was British, then it was almost certain that she appeared in it!

It's run for now ends at the NFT, but I think there are sporadic showings through to the end of September.
I am seriously thinking about going again.
Utterly wonderful.
