A Hard Day's Night(Richard Lester, 1964)
A feel-good film isn't just a mawkish fable with a happy ending. What defines the best feelgood movies is their relentless energy. In A Hard Day's Night, Richard Lester tapped into the hysteria surrounding The Beatles. Alongside the cheeky Scouse wit, he threw in plenty of running and jumping as the Fab Four tried to keep ahead of their fans. The film took its tempo from the song that provided the title.
