Brett & Cliff's Flea Circus: A movie and TV podcast


A Hard Day's Night (1964): Why we love The Beatles movie

Season 1, Ep. 36

The Beatles' debut movie appearance is a funny, boundary pushing, influential ROMP that shows off their characters, comedic side and musical talent. Directed by Richard Lester, it drew on kitchen sink dramas and French New Wave and influenced almost every music movie that came after it.

We talk about why we love it, have a quiz about musicians in movies, dissect a nursery rhyme, almost die in lifts and more.

There's also music from Independent Music Club with their song Stargazing. You can listen to them on Spotify here
