Hard Day's Night

Factual error: They're meant to be taping a TV show, but some of the cameras were motion picture cameras used for shooting the movie, rather than TV cameras. (01:16:45)

????

Factual error: After the TV producer talks to Norm and Shake, three Beatles (minus Ringo) appear singing the theme song of the movie "A Hard Day's Night". Not only are their lips not moving, but they couldn't possibly have been playing "A Hard Day's Night" because it wasn't written until after the movie was completed. (01:05:45)

????

Factual error: When they sing "I Should Have Known Better" look at Paul's left wrist - he's wearing a metal ID bracelet. Anyone who plays guitar knows that they jangle against the strings. He makes sure in any real live performances that it is tucked up in his sleeve away from the strings. (00:13:40 - 00:34:20)

????

Continuity mistake: As Paul runs out of the train to his awaiting limo its door is open. In the next shot we see him from a different angle and he opens the door again. (00:16:20)
