The Canon Episode #89: A HARD DAY’S NIGHT

It's Beatlemania up in here!

*crashing guitar chord*

It's been A Hard Day's Night, friends. One of my all-time favorite movies, one of the purest expressions of cinematic joy, one of the foundational elements of the Beatles legend, is up for the Canon. Richard Lester's film, envisioned as a quickie cash-in, ended up influencing cinematic language for decades to come and cementing a popular vision of the greatest band of all time. 

Now it's up to you: watch the movie, listen to the episode and let us know if A Hard Day's Night is Canon. Vote right here!

Next week: Blazing Saddles!
