The Beatles filmed two scenes for A Hard Day’s Night at the exclusive private members’ club Les Ambassadeurs in London. The first was on this day, and the second took place on 17 April 1964.
This first scene primarily featured Paul McCartney‘s grandfather, played by Wilfrid Brambell, gambling at a poker table in ‘Le Circle’.
While at the club, BBC journalist Jack de Manio interviewed John Lennon about his forthcoming book In His Own Write. The interview was first broadcast the following day from 7.15-7.45am, on the Home Service programme Today.
