The Beatles/John Lennon – “A Hard Day’s Night,” Original Production Photograph
A spectacular unpublished 16″ x 20″ production photograph of John Lennon on the top of a ladder, giving a thumbs-up, shot during the filming of A Hard Day’s Night, and printed from the original negative.
The photograph was almost certainly shot by the film’s unit photographer Bert Cann, and was taken just before a photo of Lennon jumping off the ladder, published on page 149 of the book “The Beatles: A Hard Day’s Night/A Private Archive” by Mark Lewisohn.
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. In superb near mint condition, with some minor rippling as with most prints this size. This will frame beautifully.
