NIGHT SEES LIGHT ON DVD

Miramax Sets September Release Date for Beatles First Film

Miramax Films will release The Beatles' A Hard Day's Night on Sept. 24 in a two-disc DVD set that includes six hours of bonus features.

Give Me Everything! A Companion Anthology to the Beatles' First Film was produced by Beatles historian Martin Lewis, who was chosen by the film's producer, the late Walter Shenson, to supervise the release and compile the new material.

Lewis conducted most of the 30 interviews, which include ones with director Richard Lester, musical director George Martin, members of the cast and crew and friends of the Beatles. The film was re-released theatrically in December 2000.

The package, which will retail for $29.99, also feature other rare and new footage. The original film has been digitally enhanced from the original 35mm negative, and the original mono soundtrack is the enhanced version that was featured in Miramax's theatrical release of this historic film.

The release of the DVD coincides with the 40th anniversary of a key event in the story of The Beatles' phenomenal success—the recording and release of their first record, "Love Me Do."

On VHS, A Hard Days Night includes Things They Said Today…, a new half-hour documentary about the film.

The film features 12 now-famous Beatles compositions, including "A Hard Day's Night," "Can't Buy Me Love," "She Loves You, "All My Loving," "And I Love Her," "If I Fell," "I Wanna Be Your Man," "I Should Have Known Better," "Tell Me Why," "Don't Bother Me" and "Ringo's Theme."
