Cast and Crew: Richard Lester (Director); John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ringo Starr
What It’s About: The plot serves as a background for the antics of the Beatles, but essentially Ringo and the gang get chased around various environments because he has a ring (get it?! Ringo?! RING?!) stuck on his finger that a Thuggee cult uses to identify their next sacrifice.
Why Watch it Today?: The Beatles made their first appearance on the Ed Sullivan show on this date in 1964.
Other Choices: You could also watch the band’s first, superior film, A Hard Day’s Night.
