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: There is a scene in the movie where the Beatles enter a limousine, I believe at the beginning of the movie. In this particular scene the Beatles are all dressed in suits and ties, but when the Beatles are filmed in the limo, John Lennon is wearing a turtle neck sweater beneath a blazer.

Question: I don't get the whole "you look just like him" conversation that John has with that woman in the corridor. Could someone please tell me what it's all about?

Chosen answer: John is just messing with her. She recognizes him as being one of the famous Beatles, but he tells her that he's "not" John Lennon, to which she responds that "you look just like him." He finally convinces her that he is not John Lennon, and she tells him, "Actually, you don't look like him at all," to which the now-insulted John puts on his hat and leaves.
