Meet the Beatles! Just one month after they exploded onto the U.S. scene with their Ed Sullivan Show appearance, John, Paul, George, and Ringo began working on a project that would bring their revolutionary talent to the big screen. A HARD DAY'S NIGHT, in which the bandmates play slapstick versions of themselves, captured the astonishing moment when they officially became the singular, irreverent idols of their generation and changed music forever. Directed with raucous, anything-goes verve by Richard Lester and featuring a slew of iconic pop anthems, including the title track, “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “I Should Have Known Better,” and “If I Fell,” A HARD DAY'S NIGHT, which reconceived the movie musical and exerted an incalculable influence on the music video, is one of the most deliriously entertaining movies of all time.

As April winds down and, with it, our tribute to car movies - I want to talk a little bit not just about the remaining films (and intimidating trilogy in its own right: Bullitt, Death Proof and Two-Lane Blacktop), but about the films that we weren’t able to program this time around.  If you haven’t seen Steve McQueen in Le Mans, you should do that.  Right now.  I mean it.

I met Ms. Hedren in the lounge of Elway's on the first floor of Denver's Ritz-Carlton. We talked about her new pursuits and her "second career" in the movies, though we started as most any conversation with Tippi Hedren must: with her time with Hitchcock.
