About the Autographs

Signed April 23rd 1964 at the Dorchester Hotel in London

During the filming of "A Hard Days Night", the Beatles 1st movie, and during the "Can't Buy Me Love" sequence, John had to leave to Isleworth to attend a literary luncheon being held in his honour at the Dorchester Hotel. This is why only Paul, George and Ringo appear at the very end of the "Can't Buy Me Love"sequence, when a groundsman shouts at them "I suppose you know this is private property" and George sarcastically responds, "Sorry we hurt your field, mister".
