Cheeky, irreverent and pretty damned witty. The Beatles and director Richard Lester knock it out of the park in the Fabs' screen debut, "A Hard Day's Night" (1964). Bonus points for Wilfrid Brambell's scene-stealing take as Paul's "very clean" granddad.

My Fair Lady Italian Movie Poster My Fair Lady (Warner Brothers, 1964). Italian 2 - Folio (39 X 55). Audrey Hepburn stars as Eliza Doolittle in this story about a phonetics professor (Rex Harrison) who wagers he can turn a flower-seller into a lady fit for society. As nice as the US poster is on this title, this Italian 2-folio is simply spectacular as it depicts Hepburn wearing her famous costume by Cecil Beaton.
