The Beatles In Their U.S. Tour
1 June 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The third episode of The Beatles Anthology covers the period February 1964 up to July 1964 - which covers mostly the arrival of the Beatles to the United States and their tours to the different parts of the country.It also includes the band's reception at the British Embassy and their first movie,"A Hard Day's Night".

At this point of the band's history,Beatlemania has already occurred.It was highlighted by their obvious popularity that they have gained in the United States.It allows the former band members to provide a recollection of their tour in the U.S. and how surprised they were that attaining it would require least effort.They apparently expected it to be a big hurdle considering that many British bands failed in fulfilling that objective.Also,it provides us of footages of their appearance at the Ed Sullivan Show at both New York and Florida which was seen by millions of Americans on television. It also provides the viewers of the band performing songs like She Loves You","I Saw Her Standing There","Please Please Me","I'll Follow the Sun" and "All My Loving" at different places like The Ed Sullivan Show,The Coliseum Concert at Washington D.C. and the Miami Beach.It also showed the reception that was given by the British Embassy in the country and when they made their first movie with Richard Lester entitled,"The Hard Day's Night". Finally,it ended when the band members recalled the World premiere of their first movie and their World Tour in 1964.

The third episode is definitely not a mystery to a lot of Beatle fans considering that the footages shown here have been seen in many websites such as YouTube.Also,many people are aware of them already that there is nothing really new in it.The only thing that would probably be worthy of notice is when Ringo was replaced for a couple of weeks by Jimmie Nicol due to tonsillitis and when John Lennon wrote a book entitled,"In His Own Write". But nevertheless,it was still a good documentary despite of the fact that many fans are already aware of the events that were featured here.
