The Beatles: Eight Days a Week
I was 7 years old when I first saw The Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show. At that tender age I was rocked. I grew up with their music, but did not know much about heir early touring years. In the documentary The Beatles: Eight Days a Week, those days are presented in archival footage and interviews with Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr. In their own words the band expressed their feelings about the music, travel and fame. The hysteria was crazy! There is a 30 minute film after the documentary of their concert at Shea Stadium. Amazing stuff. Well worth seeing.
