Facts about

Norm and Shake are loosely based on The Beatles real-life road managers Neil Aspinall and Mal Evans, respectively.
United Artists was pressuring the producers to finally come up with a title for the film. When John Lennon told producer Walter Shenson about Ringo Starr's malapropisms, Shenson thought that Ringo's phrase "a hard day's night"--referring to his resting up after an exhausting day--might make a good title. John agreed. Shenson called United Artists with the proposed title, which was coolly received. Shenson suggested that they ask the secretaries and other young employees, who might be fans of The Beatles, what they thought of the proposed title. The suggestion worked and the title was accepted.
Richard Lester:  is seen briefly at the back of the stage while The Beatles perform "Tell Me Why".
