When it opened in September 1964, “A Hard Day’s Night” was a problematic entry in a disreputable form: the rock ‘n’ roll musical. The Beatles were already a publicity phenomenon (70 million viewers watched them on “The Ed Sullivan Show”), but they were not yet cultural icons.

Many critics attended the movie and prepared to condescend, but the movie couldn’t be dismissed: It was so joyous and original that even the early reviews acknowledged it as something special. After more than five decades, it has not aged and is not dated; it stands outside its time, its genre and even rock music. It is one of the great life-affirming landmarks of the movies.
