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 »
The title of the film is "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" but the title of The Beatles song is "I Want to Hold Your Hand". See more »
A cast of unknowns with a young Robert Zemeckis as director made a movie as memorable as the Beatles themselves! Especially Wendie Jo Sperber, who is the most hysterical of all the fans, and Nancy Allen, who actually gains access to their hotel room at one point. This movie is very funny and it helps if you're an admirer of the Beatles, but anyone would like it.
