The Beatles: Eight Days a Week

Released 2016 Rating 12A
Director Ron Howard Writer/s Mark Monroe, P.G.Moergan
Starring The Beatles, Larry Kane, some celebs
Source of story Newsreels, documentaries and found footage
Elevator Pitch The film charts the development of the group from their early years, through their extraordinary rise to fame and their gradual burn out as the pressure of touring, and John’s inadvertant comparison of the group with Jesus, caused America to fall out of love with them.
Content Interviews with McCartney and Ringo Starr as well as others who were involved still alive, plus lots of footage of the group performing in the Cavern, in theatres and eventually in stadiums (stadia?). Plus, in the venue we went to, the documentary of the Beatles in Shea Stadium in 1965
A View Because of the years of studio work we tend to forget what consumate musicians they were, lighting up their performances solely with three guitars, a drum kit and some pretty primitive amplification. Worth a view just for the enjoyment of the music, and you get a story as well.
