I Wanna Hold Your Hand

1978 PG

Beatlemania hits Manhattan in director Robert Zemeckis's debut film. The comedy follows six teens on the day of the Beatles' 1964 premiere on "The Ed Sullivan Show." Bride-to-be Pam (Nancy Allen) wants a night of passion with one of the Fab Four; photographer Grace (Teresa Saldana) hopes to take the photo of her career; Rosie (Wendy Jo Sperber) and Richard (Eddie Deezen) are hysterical fans; and the other two are out to ruin the mop-tops' show.
