Q. Which Beatles movie was nominated for Oscars?

A. “A Hard Day’s Night” was the title song to The Beatles’ first movie, which was surprisingly good: it was nominated for two Oscars. At the time, a lot of movies were made starring musicians, but most were showcases for the singers and not very good (think Elvis movies). A Hard Day’s Night was a surprise because it actually had cinematic value. It even sold well when it was released on DVD many years later - and still does.

The title was taken from an expression Ringo used to say. In a 1964 interview with DJ Dave Hull, Ringo explained: “We went to do a job, and we’d worked all day and we happened to work all night. I came up still thinking it was day I suppose, and I said, ‘It’s been a hard day…’ and I looked around and saw it was dark so I said, ‘Night!’ So we came to ‘A Hard Day’s Night.'”
