published 2 months ago by UCTV

Screaming girls, overwhelmed security, and segregated auditoriums all arise in musicology Professor David Novak (UC Santa Barbara) and rock journalist Ivor Davis’ discussion about Richard Lester’s A Hard Day’s Night (1964) and the Beatles’ American audience reception. Part of a small cadre of British journalists invited, Davis accompanied the Beatles for the entirety of their astonishing first US tour. The two discuss the Beatles’ connections to earlier musicians and the unprecedented passion they were showered with by young American fans. Series: "Carsey-Wolf Center" [Show ID: 34473]
