You can hear from John, Paul, George, and Ringo themselves in In Their Own Voices, a piece on Criterion’s new special edition of A Hard Day’s Night consisting of audio recordings of the Beatles talking about the movie during their 1964 American tour, presented over behind-the-scenes stills and production footage. In this short excerpt, the Beatles talk about the importance of making a movie debut that wasn’t “slapdash,” their working relationship with producer Walter Shenson, and writing the film’s legendary title track.
