'A Hard Day's Night'

Janus Films is set to release a brand new 4K restoration of the Beatles’ delirious, anything-goes musical “A Hard Day’s Night” -- where John, Paul, George and Ringo play slapstick versions of themselves, hounded by gaga fans --  in more than 50 cities over the July 4 weekend, including New York’s Film Forum, LA’s Cinefamily and San Francisco’s Castro Theatre.

The film is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary this year, and was recently unveiled at the TCM Classic Film Festival in Hollywood. It was restored from the original camera negative by the team over at the Criterion Collection. The result, approved by director Richard Lester, has a remixed and remastered soundtrack by producer Giles Martin at Abbey Road Studios.

Classic songs include “I Should Have Known Better,” “If I Fell,” Can’t Buy Me Love,” and the title track, natch, “A Hard Day’s Night.” Check out some funny clips below.

    I hope to God they have deleted that stupid animated prologue and restored the sound of the girls screaming to the opening credits sequence.
