A Hard Day's Night

 (1964)

A Hard Day's Night Blu-ray delivers truly amazing video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

A rock and roll adventure that follows "a day in the life" of those four lads from Liverpool who made music history as The Beatles. This musical "mockumentary" leads us into the madness of the fab four's everyday lives where the simple act of traveling from Liverpool to London for a television performance involves escaping from the invasion of a mob of fainting teenagers, outwitting a hungry pack of newspaper reporters, and stopping Paul's meddlesome grandfather from breaking the band apart. Cus' you know, you can't do that.

For more about A Hard Day's Night and the A Hard Day's Night Blu-ray release, see A Hard Day's Night Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Wilfrid Brambell, Norman Rossington
Director: Richard Lester

A Hard Day's Night Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.75:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Richard Lester's A Hard Day's Night arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray release:

"Approved by director Richard Lester, this new digital transfer was created in 4K resolution on a Scanity film scanners from the 35mm original camera negative and two 35mm fine-grain master positives. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, and jitter were manually removed using MTI's DRS and Pixel Farm's PFClean, while Digital Vision's Phoenix was used for small dirt, grain, noise management, and flicker.

Transfer supervisor: Russel Smith.
Colorist: Sheri Eisenberg/Colorworks, Culver City, CA.
Additional 4K scanning: Deluxe London."

Recently restored in 4K, A Hard Day's Night looks gorgeous on Blu-ray. Indeed, there are dramatic improvements in every single area we tend to scrutinize in our reviews, from image depth and clarity to contrast stability and overall image stability. The overwhelming majority of the close-ups impress with terrific depth, while the large panoramic shots boast exceptional clarity and fluidity (see screencaptures #2 and 11). The outdoor footage, in particular, is always enormously vibrant. Contrast levels remain stable throughout the entire film. Grain is well refined and evenly distributed. Additionally, there are no traces of compromising degraining corrections and sharpening adjustments. Quite predictably, the film has a solid and enormously pleasing organic appearance. Lastly, it is very easy to tell that large debris, scratches, cuts, stains, and damage marks have been carefully removed as the film now looks incredibly clean and healthy. To sum it all up, this is indeed a very beautiful presentation of A Hard Day's Night that will likely remain the film's definitive presentation on the home video market. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Fee PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


A Hard Day's Night Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There are three standard audio tracks on this Blu-ray release: English LPCM 2.0 (mono), English LPCM 2.0 (stereo), and English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

I viewed the entire film with the lossless mono track and was enormously pleased with. It has excellent depth, very pleasing clarity, and good range of nuanced dynamics. The music and the dialog are also very well balanced (there are no sudden spikes or drops in dynamic activity). The dialog is clean, stable, and exceptionally easy to follow.

I tested select sequences with the stereo track and the new 5.1 track made by Apple Records. Both offer improved nuanced dynamics, though only the latter noticeably opens up the film in select areas. For the record, there are no problematic pops, cracks, background hiss, audio dropouts, or distortions to report in this review.
