Ron Howard directed this look at the Fab Four from their first recorded performances thru their last show at Candlestick Park. The footage (some of which is being shown for the first time) captures the magic and energy that the foursome generated…not to mention the endless screaming crowds. It also contrasts their early charming “mop top” beginnings with the less enthuiastic experiences that ultimately ended their live concerts. It’s crisply intercut with interviews from the Beatles and famous fans that adds a personal perspective to deepen the appreciation of their impact on the world. If you’re like me, you’ll sing along with every song and revel in the joy that their music still brings. (Look for Sigourney Weaver as a fan in the Hollywood Bowl crowd.) NOTE: This is being simultaneously released on DVD & Hulu, but without 30 minutes of the re-mastered Shea Stadium concert that plays in the cinema.
