Am watching the BBC4 airing (i've paused it). Firstly it looks fabulous. 

I've seen this lord knows how many times but George is shaving on the train when they are first talking to Grandad. I've never noticed that before. Also - why is George shaving on the train (love his portable razor)?ahdn_george_06

8:25pm edit: Up to the end of If I Fell - looks to me that the whole performance is slightly out of sync but the line they have "repaired" is a mess as you can hear Paul sing "was in vain" before Paul sings "was in vain".

8:55pm edit: Whilst Grandad is getting at Ringo in the cafe, towards the end whilst Ringo says "what's in it for me?" one of the guys in the background looking bored steals a newspaper one of the wounded actors is reading peeving him off. When Ringo leaves the canteen the man has his paper back.

9:30pm edit: finished. Damn good that was. Hadnt seen it in ages. Only right i watch it on Friday.a-hard-days-night-john-4

I don't remember the movie well enough since I saw it long ago -- obviously they're "lip-synching" to songs, so aren't they always off, or is this really a mismatch of the new release??

Here's a spoiler? video clip plus brief article for those of us (me) who don't have the Criterion video.

Just got back from seeing it. Lennon steals the show; Ringo's not far behind. George has his scene where he makes all the funny faces. Paul doesn't have many speaking lines. Great, great editing. The movie really zips along.

They've cut out "I'll Cry Instead"! I have a memory of the movie opening with that song (due to the movie being completed, etc... etc...). I suppose they just replaced with a AHDN. Makes sense.

One more year and we get to see Help! on the big screen! [someone's gonna be starting that thread]

@Into the Sky with Diamonds I'll Cry Instead was added to the beginning of the film, with the use of stills, for the first (1982) video release. It wasn't part of the original release, which starts as you saw it most recently, with A Hard Day's Night.

It was used because it was the lost musical sequence from the film, the last minute cut, the group having been filmed performing it during the Scala sequence, and it hitting the cutting-room floor.

OK, thanks. I think "You Can't Do That" was also cut. In fact, isn't that the song that was performed but cut?
