Still Fab After All These Years

A spiffed-up Hard Day's Night continues to dazzle, with its jump cuts, slow motion and sped-up Beatles antics

Amid some projects that seem like commercial work-for-hire -- Superman II, Superman III and Butch and Sundance: The Early Days, in particular -- is a broad range of wonderful movies, including The Knack, How I Won the War, Petulia, The Three Musketeers (1974), Juggernaut (1974), The Four Musketeers (1975) and Robin and Marian (1976).

There will always be Beatles revivals, but we're way overdue for a major Richard Lester revival. For now, we'll have to make do with A Hard Day's Night, with its crisp new print and vastly clarified soundtrack. And that's not so bad at all.
