The Beatles' A Hard Day's Night: 5 more facts you should have known better

Good afternoon, Beatle people. It's 17:08 here in Bangkok and the sun was going down. Let's continue talking about some more astonishing facts from the Fabs' first movie.

1.When a female reporter asked John Lennon if he has any hobbies. John's written answer unseen by us read 'tits'.

2.Pattie Boyd (later George Harrison's wife) appear three times in the first act: 1) She is one of the two "schoolgirls on the train" they first encounter 2) Paul chats her up with her friend. 3) She sits next to Paul and smiles and sings on "I Should Have Known Better". all on the train.

3.Opening scene, you'll see George Harrison stumbles and falls: that's real.

4.In the boys-romp-in-the-field scene there is 'Can't Buy Me Love' accompanied but the first choice is 'I'll Cry Instead'...Well, good change because Can't Buy Me Love is more upbeat and that's not the sad scene.

5.While all Beatles attended the movie's premiere, none stayed for the whole show.

In the clip below watch 'I'll Cry Instead' which was switched to be the introduction in the VHS version and at 2:27 watch George Harrison's stumbling as mentioned in 3.You know it's real when you see Lennon's laugh at him!
