I meant to put my post above (142) into this thread instead of the scholarly thread on the remixing of the movie so I moved that conversation here.

So, the 2002 the one you have, @IveJustSeenAFaceo, has a digitally restored soundtrack and an enhanced picture. I'm not into this kind of stuff. How does that make it different from the original? What type of enhancements were done? How does the sound seem different?

I hope those questions aren't too daft. They probably are. But, I'm still curious to know.

I never saw anything before the Miramax release, so I don't know how the picture was enhanced. It looked fine to me, though. The soundtrack seemed a little too loud in comparison with the voices. I think I remember turning it up and down.

I posted a pic from last night's Don't Knock the Rock festival's AHDN opening at Cinefamily of director Allison Anders giving the intro, and sharing her memories of seeing the film several times when it first came out. She said she screamed her way through it every time, and only heard the dialogue when she saw it a drive-in, where she couldn't scream. 

She also credits AHDN with jumpstarting her career as a filmmaker. For those unfamiliar with Allison Anders, she's actually name-checked by Paul in Many Years from Now, which I have to think is the ultimate nod for a diehard fan.

Ms. Anders did giveaways that included the poster for the latest release. I knew the answers to all of them but one (about Charlotte Rampling), but since I was volunteering, I didn't think it was appropriate to raise my hand to answer any of them.

This was the most fun I've had volunteering so far. I wore my Paul tour t-shirt, and got many compliments on it. After the screening, I overheard a man asking Ms. Anders about the additional performance that didn't make it into the film. She hadn't heard about it, so I jumped in and told him the song ("You Can't Do That") is available on the new DVD/Blu-Ray set.

If you have the chance to watch the film on a big screen, you should. I was noticing nuances in facial expressions I hadn't picked up on a smaller screen. And it's just so much fun to see it with other enthusiastic fans. Later, I told the volunteer coordinator that if he needs me for other screenings this week, I'm happy to help out. :-D

This article convinced me that the 2002 version is a must-buy.  There are lots of extras - interviews, another Peter Asher documentary, etc.

Half of what I say is meaningless... I feel good in a special way, I'm in love and it's a sunny day BeatlesBible.com earns royalties if you use these links when shopping: Amazon | iTunes

Saw AHDN in a theatre tonight!  It was so amazing to see it on a big screen, huge Beatle faces to look upon (they were so cute and so young), see their personalities come through, and the sound and picture were really clean.  (So was Paul's grandfather.)  I noticed and understood things I hadn't before and their instruments are really cool to look at, too.  I wished that the audience could have let loose and screamed or whatever but everyone was too old and the place was really intimate, like 20-25 people tops.  The film seemed to play by much faster than I remember but it was a really great treat.  If you can see AHDN in theatres, do it, how many times in your life can they put The Beatles in the movies?

It's been A Hard Day's Night for me, so now it's time to say goodnight.  Tomorrow's not just another day... I'll be at a rock show in Paulbany!  a-hard-days-night-paul-8
