A rare and sought after Japanese B2 poster for The Beatles' first full-length feature film A Hard Day's Night, which followed the fab four over an anarchic 36 hours in London at the height of Beatlemania. Director Richard Lester's snappy editing and energetic pacing gave the film a uniquely modern documentary style and led to the development of the music video. Considered one of the most influential musical films ever made, the offbeat sixties classic is often voted among the top 100 films of the 20th century. Offering some of the best and certainly the quirkiest artwork created to promote the film, this vibrant and joyful poster can't help but make you grin.
Unfolded, not backed. Minor nicks and handling wear to edges and bumps to corners. A smattering of light creases through image. Small paper score to the right of George. Whisper of darkening to edges. Colours excellent.
