The Geek Show's new podcast about pop stars in the movies couldn't start with any other film. It's 1964, the Beatles are running away from a mob of schoolgirls, and Richard Lester is about to reinvent the rock and roll movie with A Hard Day's Night. But how did this landmark in both musical and cinematic history come to be? Join Graham and Joe for a tale involving The Goon Show, banned documentaries, working-class playwrights and a serious loophole in the Beatles' EMI contract, all somehow adding up to pop movie gold.
