Although Beatles songs have been translated and recorded by hundreds of foreign artists, "I Want To Hold Your Hand" is one of only two songs that were recorded in another language by the Beatles themselves. In 1964, at the height of Beatlemania, the Beatles traveled to Paris for their only studio recording session outside the UK. Along with a new English single ("Can't Buy Me Love"), they recorded two of their existing songs in German: "I Want To Hold Your Hand" ("Komm, Gib Mir Deine Hand") and "She Loves You" ("Sie Liebt Dich"). The songs were translated by Luxembourg lyricist Camillo Felgen, and taught to the Beatles phonetically. Oddly, while the stereo masters of the English versions of these songs have been lost (only mono masters exist), the German versions have both stereo and mono masters. See more »
When Tony Smerko catches Larry DuBois selling fragments of Beatles bed sheets in a building entryway, he knocks the stack out of Larry's hands and they are shown scattered around their feet on the floor. Tony goes on to berate Larry for a moment in a shot from the waist up, with neither of them bending down to pick up the sheet fragments, but when they proceed to walk off together, the stack of sheet fragments is gone.

Group of girlfriends scheme to see The Beatles when they come to New York City to appear on Ed Sullivan's television program in 1964. Fresh, fast-paced representation of obsessed fandom, coupled with canny recreation of an nostalgic era. Unfortunately, the story has nowhere in particular to go in the third act and resorts to ridiculous slapstick. Still, for the first three-quarters of the way, a very bright, sometimes exhilarating feature which never found its audience (the majority of the press it generated was in regards to Steven Spielberg's co-producer association). The young cast is quite good, though they are sometimes encouraged to overdo it. **1/2 from ****
