Hard Day's Night

Visible crew/equipment: In their final performance look closely and you can see director Richard Lester moving through the shot. He's between the Beatles and the audience. (01:16:30)


Visible crew/equipment: In the dining car the reflection of the crew and the equipment can be seen on the far right against the wall. (00:08:15)


Visible crew/equipment: A grumpy old man comes into their stateroom and sits with The Beatles. If you watch closely on the left of the screen someone bumps into the stage light and we can see it flicker. (00:06:05)


Visible crew/equipment: In their final performance Richard Lester's shadow is seen going across John Lennon's back as he walks from the back of the stage to the spot where we see him between The Beatles and the audience. (01:16:30)


Visible crew/equipment: The cameraman's shadow and reflection are seen on the left of the photo booth that the Beatles were hiding in during the opening scenes. (00:02:00)


Visible crew/equipment: In the second verse of "If I Fell" there's a shot from behind Ringo. Just as they sing, "If I trust in you" you can see a crewmember's head bobbing up and down at the bottom right of the screen. We see this place in previous and subsequent shots and no one is sitting there. (00:33:25)


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.

T.V. Director: You don't know what this means to me. If you hadn't come back it would have meant... the epilogue or the news... in Welsh... for life.

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.
