A hard day's night by Richard Lester( Visual )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Meet the Beatles! Just one month after they exploded onto the U.S. scene with their Ed Sullivan Show appearance, John, Paul, George, and Ringo began working on a project that would bring their revolutionary talent to the big screen. A Hard Day's Night, in which the bandmates play slapstick versions of themselves, captured the astonishing moment when they officially became the singular, irreverent idols of their generation and changed music forever. Directed with raucous, anything-goes verve by Richard Lester and featuring a slew of iconic pop anthems, uncluding the title track, "Can't Buy Me Love," "I Should Have Known Better," and "If I Fell," A Hard Day's Night, which reconceived the movie musical and exerted an incalculable influence on the music video, is one of the most deliriously entertaining movies of all time."--Back cover

18 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Szenen aus dem Leben der Beatles während einer Konzerttournee in England: eine Kombination aus dokumentarischen Musikmitschnitten ihrer Bühnenauftritte, eingeflochtenen Slapstick-Gags und rudimentärer Spielhandlung, mit viel Witz, Tempo und dramaturgischem Geschick inszeniert. Neuartig und richtungsweisend für spätere Musikfilme ist die authentische Wiedergabe von Lebensgefühl und Zeit-Atmosphäre, die weniger durch protokollarischen Realismus als durch schöpferische Unordnung und parodistische Stilexperimente erreicht wird.
