‘Hard Day’s’ DVD set to dawn

Two-disc set to include 6 hrs. of info

HOLLYWOOD — Miramax Home Entertainment will release the Beatles’ “A Hard Day’s Night” Sept. 24 in a two-disc DVD set that includes six hours of bonus features.

“Give Me Everything! A Companion Anthology to the Beatles’ First Film” has been produced by Beatles historian and producer Martin Lewis, who was picked by the film’s producer, the late Walter Shenson, to supervise the release and compile the new material.

Lewis praised Miramax’s Harvey Weinstein for resisting a fast DVD bow after the film’s theatrical re-release in December 2000. Weinstein kept saying, “Do what you need to do; make this special,” Lewis said.

Lewis conducted most of the 30 interviews, which include ones with helmer Richard Lester, musical director George Martin, members of the cast and crew, and friends of the Beatles.

The last major Beatles release was the greatest-hits album “1,” which has sold more than 28 million units worldwide since its November 2000 release. The DVD launch date marks the 40th anniversary of the release of “Love Me Do,” the Beatles’ first record.

“Hard Day’s Night” will have a retail price of $29.99. Direct prebook date is July 30; DVD distributor prebook date is Aug. 13.
