If they missed Beatles' first appearance in the U.S.A. they would hate themselves for the rest of their lives! So they (six teenagers 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

In his pre-titles address to the CBS pages, Will Jordan's version of Ed Sullivan says that he and his wife Sylvia had seen The Beatles perform in England the previous year. In fact, the real-life Sullivan had booked The Beatles for his show based on the reaction they drew from fans at London's Heathrow Airport, which delayed the Sullivans' own flight to New York. The first time Sullivan saw The Beatles perform was on a film that had been aired on CBS Evening News with Walter Cronkite on December 10, 1963, weeks after the booking had been made. See more »

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.

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.
