Originally released in 1964, after the group's phenomenal first visit to the United States, A Hard Day's Night features the moptops' zany antics and a super Beatles soundtrack. This eternally hip film, directed by Richard Lester, is among the most innovative rock-and-roll movies ever released, perfectly capturing the spirit and sound of the Beatles.

Criterion's CAV special edition includes:

  • The theatrical trailer for the 1982 re-release
  • An interview with director Richard Lester
  • Lester's experimental The Running, Jumping and Standing Still Film, which inspired the Beatles to work with him on A Hard Day's Night
