July Marks the 60th Anniversary of A Hard Day's Night, the Beatles First Movie


I remember seeing the movie at the Continental Theater in Forest Hills in July 1964.  It has appeared from time to time on Turner Classic Movies.  I have it saved to my DVR.  The record above is the soundtrack album released on UA Records back then. It includes instrumentals from George Martin's film score including This Boy and And I Love Her.  I still have my copy. but it is badly scratched.

This record, now available on CD includes the vocals from the movie and other Beatles recordings from that time including Anytime at All and The Things We Said Today.

The video below compares the two releases.
