The movie's strange title originated from something said by Ringo Starrwho described it this way in an interview with disc jockey Dave Hull in "We went to do a job, and we'd worked all day and we happened to work all night. I came up still thinking it was day I suppose, and I said, 'It's been a hard day According to Lennon in a interview with Playboy magazine: "I was going home in the car, and Dick Lester suggested the Summer Girl - Honeyrider - Sunshine Skyway, 'Hard Day's Night' from something Ringo had said.
You know, one of those malapropisms. A Ringo-ism, where he said it not to be funny So Dick Lester said, 'We are going to use that title. In a interview for The Beatles Anthologyhowever, McCartney disagreed with Lennon's recollections, recalling that it was the Beatles, and not Lester, who had come up with the idea of using Starr's verbal misstep: "The title was Ringo's.
We'd almost finished making the film, and this fun bit arrived that we'd not known about before, which was naming the film. So we were sitting around at Twickenham studios having a little brain-storming session And he said after a concert, 'Phew, it's been a hard day's night.

Here We Come! InPan Books published a novelisation of the film by author John Burkedescribed as "based on the original screenplay by Alun Owen".
The book was priced at two shillings and The Beatles - A Hard Days Night and contained an 8-page section of photographs from the movie.
It is the first book in the English language to have the word 'grotty' in it. On 6 Julythe 40th anniversary of the film's world premiere, a private cast and crew reunion screening was hosted in London by DVD producer Martin Lewis. In media interviews at the event, McCartney disclosed that while he had seen the film many times on video, he had not seen the film on the "big screen" since its premiere.
