On July 6, 1964, The Beatles appear in their first movie. Despite a small filming budget, and being shot only in black and white, A Hard Day’s Night turns out to be a huge success, and proves to be extremely influential. Its camera and editing techniques are still being used today. And the film is considered the inspiration for the music video. Also, a guitar that George Harrison used for the first time in the movie inspires a whole new sound and genre in rock.
