2:20  7:50

Friday, April 15

(1964, Maysles Bros.) Given the go-ahead to film the Beatles’ first visit to America only two hours before their plane touched down, the Brothers follow the Fab Four for five frenetic days, from crazed reception at Idewild, to press conferences, to backstage at the Ed Sullivan Show, to hotel room hanging out, to their equally frenzied homecoming.
