It was directed by Richard Lester, who did a lot of surreal comedy (he'd previously worked on film adaptations of ''TheGoonShow''), some of which is seen in this film. The screenwriter was Alun Owen. Owen spent a week with the group to write the right script, and was nominated for an Oscar. However, if you want to find out what's scripted and [[ThrowItIn what's improvised,]] his original screenplay has been published and is still in print.

** Thankfully, TheCriterionCollection came to the rescue in 2014, releasing a 4K restoration approved by director Richard Lester on both DVD and UsefulNotes/BluRay. Not only did the release restore the film's original aspect ratio, it also contained a mono soundtrack.

The first and greatest film of Music/TheBeatles. It provided clear caricatures of the members of the band -- not ideal, but better than the {{Band Toon}}s. And it helped fuel the phenomenon it showed on-screen.
