It's Been A Hard Day's Night, Help!, Yellow Submarine, Magical Mystery Tour, Let It Be.... These were the five films made by the Beatles, films that, like the band itself, broke new ground, set new trends and became cult favorites that continue to fascinate fans a quarter of a century later. Beatles at the Movies provides detailed behind-the-scene takes on the making of these films. It describes each movie location, the antics of the Fab Four in front of -- and behind -- the camera, the day-to-day events and the sometimes unusual problems the crew encountered. It also provides in-depth information on the recordings of the songs used in each movie. Featuring a foreword by Richard Lester, director of the first two Beatles films, it gives an insider's point of view on these films that no other book has ever offered.

Beatlemania has experienced a major resurgence. ABC's documentary on the band (which was re-broadcast in the fall of 1996), and the release of their two "new" singles generated tremendous fanfare. Two more double-CD sets of Beatles recordings have been released, and the Beatles are crawling all over the World Wide Web. Beatles at the Movies taps into this continuing interest, and will have tremendous appeal for movie fans and fans of the greatest rock 'n' roll band in history.
