Default I Wanna Hold Your Hand The Movie

All this talk about Beatle movies made me think of The Beatle related movie, I Wanna Hold Your Hand. This movie I thought was kinda funny. However, it's sad that it isn't the real Beatles in it. And of course, you can not see the actors who are playing The Beatles faces. It's mainly about a few Beatle fans that are on their way to The Beatles first American concert. I couldn't believe my eyes when one of the girls in movie snock into The Beatles dressing room! It made you wish you were her, and that those actors really were the real Beatles. Too bad that they weren't!

I hope you guys know what I'm talking about. Has anyboy else seen this movie or not?

Yes I've seen that movie, and I love it!! One of my all-time favorites. I've been trying to find it on dvd myself, do you have it? and where did you find it?
I thought "the Beatles" on the movie were just different people, I didn't know the real Beatles were in it. I've been wanting to see it again, but haven't been able to find it.
But yes I have seen it and it is a great movie for first time or any time Beatles fans!

I said it wasn't the real Beatles. I said I wished it was. It was the original Beatlemania band I believe.

By the way, I do not have it on VHS or DVD, I happened to have seen it on tv a few times before in the past.

They've never put that movie out on DVD, though as far as I know you can still find it on VHS.

I love it! I have watched this 1978 treasure many times.

Check out the girl under the bed when George stepped out of those "trousers" so they could go to the cleaners! And then there was that weird Condiment Man...I just love this movie!

I wish I could have been in that movie.

I would have been a natural. All I'd have to do is act naturally, yeah, yeah, yeah!

Default Re: I Wanna Hold Your Hand The Movie

as hrd said, it IS on DVD, just re-released this year. as far as where to get it.
Amazon has it
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...d&n=507846

even my local Borders bookstore had it displayed, face-front, in their "new releases" secion. that was about late september/early october so its probably not a *new* release anymore. still should be easy to find at a DVD retailer though

I love the bit where the girl sneaks up to their room! on one hand, its a bit obsessive the way she acts but on the other hand how many of us would have done something similar in that situation?

Wasn't this one of Zameckis' first films or something? Speilberg usually has ties to Zameckis films, i wonder if there was a production connection with this one?

Yes, this was one of Robert Zemeckis's first films, and Steven Speilberg was the Executive Producer.

I saw this film when it came out in the theatres in 1979 and I loved it -- I had friends that could be every one of those kids in the movie! I think it does an excellent job of capturing a time and place...and guess what? It's a fanfic! Seriously -- Zemeckis is a huge Beatles fan, and he wrote this fictional story and filmed it -- it's a fanfic!

Actually, this movie came out in 1978. I watched it I don't know how many times and, as of last year the proud owner of the video.

Great news about it being on dvd. I love this one!

<font color="green"> Yes, I know. I was waiting for the new release. I went looking for it today at Walmart: nothing. So I will need to go to my local Media Play and see what they have sometime.

[/ QUOTE ] What really was funny about that, was when the actors playing The Beatles comes back into the room, and the girls hiding under the bed. The pretend Beatles are all like. Eww, what is this. It looks like drowl on my bass. Something like that anyway. I couldn't believe my eyes though.
