What an inspired idea Beatles manager Brian Epstein had to introduce the world to John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr in the 1964 film “A Hard Day’s Night”. Naturals for the camera, the lads stole our hearts and delivered a funny, nonstop scream fest! Paul’s “grandfather” (“villain, a real mixer” 🙂 (Wilfrid Brambell) practically stole the show ascending from under the stage during the middle of a number!
The film never gets old and always lifts my spirits and brings a smile with thoughts and memories of a glorious time gone by.
