HDN: tits.


You have no doubt seen A Hard Day's Night many less times than me, and yet will still have vivid mammaries of the titular sequence where Les Fabs are grilled by the lads and gentles of the press. Papable nonsense.
Perhaps the most memorable tit is the bit where John is asked about his hobbies, and responds with a shocking scribble.
Ever wondered what he titty? Wonder no more: the answer, inevitably, is "tits".
Watch it again if you don't believe me, as if you needed an excuse.
Thanks to Sir Thomas, as ever.

  1. my dear friend, i have watched that movie at least 100 times and i knew that - but it's always fun to remember! i have to see it again one of these days. this crazy person here even saw the boys get into emi, rushed to get a train to go i don't know where in london to watch a double feature of hdn and help and came rushing back to see them come out of the studios. at least i wasn't alone - had several friends with me.

  2. One of my favorite bits of Beatles subversion. And Ed Sullivan thought they were such well-mannered lads...
