A sharp music publisher at United Artists Records London finds a loophole in the Beatles' exclusive Parlophone recording contract: he thinks he can sign them to record a soundtrack. Now all they need to do is make a movie.
The Beatles - A Hard Day's Night (Live In Paris 1965) on YouTube:
United Artists films a low-budget, day-in-the-life-of-the-band script by Alun Owen, who crystallizes their personalities. What you see on-screen is a reflection of the real guys - sarcastic, witty, and all-for-one, one-for-all mates.
The Beatles - A Hard Day's Night (Live In Indianapolis - September 1964) on YouTube:
A Hard Day’s Night is the first Beatles album of all their own compositions—six made to order for the film. The soundtrack spawned the film, and the film gave the band global success. All so United Artists could sell a Beatles record. - Chris
