John Lennon – 16″ x 20″ “A Hard Day’s Night” Photograph from Original Negative (The Beatles)
A spectacular 16″ x 20″ production photograph of John Lennon taken during the filming of A Hard Day’s Night, printed from the original negative. Posing with Lennon are two actresses who appear in the film, Pauline Chamberlain and Susan Hampshire, and the movie’s producer, Walter Shenson.
The photograph was almost certainly shot by the film’s unit photographer Bert Cann. This print was made circa 1980 by celebrated photographer Jim McCrary, who’s photographs graced the covers of many famed albums including Carole King’s Tapestry, Joe Cocker’s Mad Dogs and Englishmen, and albums by Cat Stevens, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bobby “Blue” Bland, and B.B. King.
We acquired this print from legendary music business executive Jeff Ayeroff, who has signed the back of the print, below the legend “A Hard Day’s Night” production photograph printed from the original negative by Jim McCrary. I oversaw the design of the poster and visual materials for the 1981 theatrical re-release, and this photograph was printed during the design process.
An extraordinary Beatles collectible in near mint condition and ready to frame; with Recordmecca’s written lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
