6 – Can’t Buy Me Love – A Hard Day’s Night (1964)
Shot in the cinéma vérité format – A Hard Day’s Night is not only the finest Beatles film, but arguably one of the greatest ever musical productions, and such a sentiment is epitomised in Can’t Buy Me Love, which shows the band running around and jumping up and down. Simple as it may sound – it encapsulates an era and hysteria, and shows off the sense of adventure and fun they had, and encouraged. Running through what looks like a council estate, this black and white scene is special because there is no one else around, and as a band that couldn’t walk down the street in fear of being swamped with young fans, there is something heartwarming about them appearing so freely. It also confirms the band as a unit too, as they are the only four people in the world who could have possibly known what this experience was like, and this is an illustration of this particualr bond between the four of them.
