It's a lovely film, so full of energy and beautifully shot by Gil  
Taylor.  Anyone know what stock it was shot on?  Ilford?  Kodak?   
Agfa?  DuPont?  Ansco?  Ferrania?

I think Julie Christie makes her first film appearance dancing in a  
club, though it may be someone else.

Worth seeing the Maysles Brothers "What's Happening -- The Beatles in  
the US" which can now be seen again -- a film of their first US tour,  
influential on Richard Lester.  Speaking of Lester, catch "It's Trad,  
Dad" (also known as Ring-A-Ding Rhythm) on TCM -- predecessor to Hard  
Day's Night -- a jukebox movie with some surreal moments in it (catch  
the proto-Bonzo art-school band) and amazing early music videos 20  
years too early.
