A Hard Days Night By The Beatles

It had been eight weeks since the Beatles had a number one single but that streak ended on August 1, 1964, when “A Hard Day’s Night” reached the top of the charts for the first of two weeks.

The film of the same name premiered July 6, 1964, to favorable reviews. The cream of high society turned out and over 10,000 people gathered around the theater.

One of the highlights of filming was George Harrison meeting Patti Boyd, his (and Eric Clapton’s) future wife, on set.

“A Hard Day’s Night” entered the BILLBOARD Hot 100 at number 21 and two weeks later it was number one.
