When Hard Day's Night was first released 50 years ago,
I was 12 and very caught up in Beatle mania.
They had first landed in the US in February of that year on
my birthday and of course I took that as a sign -
of what I'm not sure, but a sign nevertheless!
Margot and I went to see it at our local indy theater
(the first time I'd watched it since the summer of '64).
