A Hard Day’s Night

The Canon #88 August 8, 2016

This week, Devin and Amy discuss the 1964 Beatles comedy “A Hard Day’s Night.” They talk about the film’s documentary flair, the subversiveness of George Harrison’s antics, and the chivalric elements throughout. They try to contextualize the movie into the larger Beatles’ chronology and then explain how tone and energy were so important to director Richard Lester. Should “A Hard Day’s Night” be inducted into the Canon? Cast your vote on the Earwolf forums!
