Trivia

United Artists, which signed The Beatles to a three-picture deal, acquired this short subject as well. In 1964, it was shown with their 'teen' picture "For Those Who Think Young" before the band's first picture, "A Hard Day's Night" was released in US theaters. See more »

I believe that this is the film I showed in 1964
22 September 2004 | by bt015c9464See all my reviews

I believe this was the special edition of Pathe Pictorial wholly devoted to a live performance by The Beatles. It was in colour and was the only time I know of that Pathe used the Cinemascope format. I think it was in 1964 when I was working as a projectionist (Cinematograph Technician) at the Warner Cinema Leicester Square and we were instructed to hold the showing of Pathe Pictorial as it was being replaced.

I have never seen any reference to it, yet it was probably the best film ever made in the Pathe Pictorial series. Even in the projection room there was the impression of actually being in the theatre where they were performing. I have been trying to trace what became of it for some years, strangely, no-one at Pathe seems to know of it.
