If they missed Beatles' first appearance in the U.S.A. they would hate themselves for the rest of their lives! So they (six young girls from New Jersey) set off even though they don't have tickets for the show! The journey is full of surprises and misfortunes but the young ladies are determined to reach to their idols... Written by

these youngsters are suffering from a highly contagious disease called beatlemania. The symptoms are...screaming hysteria hyperventilation fainting fits seizures and spasmodic convulsions It isn't fatal but it sure is fun.
Although Beatles songs have been translated and recorded by hundreds of foreign artists, "I Want To Hold Your Hand" is one of only two songs that were recorded in another language by the Beatles themselves. In 1964, at the height of Beatlemania, the Beatles traveled to Paris for their only studio recording session outside the UK. Along with a new English single ("Can't Buy Me Love"), they recorded two of their existing songs in German: "I Want To Hold Your Hand" ("Komm, Gib Mir Deine Hand") and "She Loves You" ("Sie Liebt Dich"). The songs were translated by Luxembourg lyricist Camillo Felgen, and taught to the Beatles phonetically. Oddly, while the stereo masters of the English versions of these songs have been lost (only mono masters exist), the German versions have both stereo and mono masters. See more »

Now, I know a lot of you are wondering about tomorrow night's show. Just who are these youngsters from Liverpool who call themselves the Beatles? Just what can we expect? Well, let me put it in perspective for you.Now, here a few years ago,we had a young vocalist up on our stage by the name of Elvis Presley. He, a few of you may remember...

I remember seeing this film at three-thirty in the morning when I couldn't sleep and I was in the sixth grade. It was really funny and kept me awake until about five fifteen in the morning...and I had school to go to! Needless to say I never went back to sleep, and at school all I could talk about was this film. The film, directed by Robert Zemekis and produced by Steven Spielberg, is about the pandemonium that ensued when the Beatles came to America to play for Ed Sullivan. Naturally, this film being about teenagers, it appealed to a younger crowd, but an older one at this day and age, as it was the older crowd who were alive and witnessed this chaos. Nancy Allen and Theresa Saldana are great(what ever happened to her?) Wendie Jo Sperber as usual does a fine comedic performance, while Mark McClure and Eddie Deezen have funny little side roles. Written by Bob Gale and Zemeckis, this one is sure to be a laugh riot, almost as laugh out loud as 1941, but with more real life issues and realistic tones. A Funny Film!
