A humorous, freewheeling and candid account of The Beatles arrival in America in February 1964. The Maysles follow the Fab Four for five days, from the crazed JFK airport reception to unguarded moments inside the Plaza Hotel in preparation for their landmark Ed Sullivan Show appearance to their equally frenzied homecoming. This ingenuous and humorous film inspired Richard Lester’s “A Hard Day’s Night” (1964)!
DIR: Albert Maysles & David Maysles, USA, 1964, 74 min.
