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 the movie takes place in 1964, the titles of three of The Beatles' songs from later on in their career are mentioned: "Helter Skelter" (woman in hotel elevator says, "Things are all Helter Skelter"), "Get Back" (what the police tell the teenagers as they attempt to save Janis and Peter), and "909" (as in "The One After 909") - 909 is the room number of the man who wants a call girl.

That looks dangerous!
Richard 'Ringo' Klaus:
Not really. It's not as dangerous as when I got thrown off the Long Island Rail Road, and this isn't even moving.

There is a scene that takes place about three quarters of the way through this film that is not only one of the ten funniest scenes in the history of movie-making, but probably does even a better job of summing up what the year 1964 was all about than Dr. Strangelove. It involves Christian Juttner, who must confront an evil looking one-eyed barber, and a snake-like pair of electric clippers.
And forget Burt Lancaster & Deborah Kerr on the beach in "From Here To Eternity." For sheer lustful passion, that scene doesn't even come close to Nancy Allen's roll in the hay with Paul McCartney's Hoffner bass.
A flawless masterpiece!
