The Beatles drummer Ringo Starr has discussed the A Hard Day's Night movie on its 50th anniversary and ahead of its re-release in cinemas and on DVD.

"I mean, we were in a movie, man. We were making a movie!" remembers Starr in a new interview with Billboard. "Four guys from Liverpool making a movie - it was so great. I loved it...".

He continues, saying the whole experience of making a film was "mad". Starr said: "It was a really exciting thing to do. We were making records and, wow, the records were taking off and then we're playing to bigger and bigger audiences and that's taking off, and now we're doing a movie. It was mad... but it was incredible."

The 1964 film, which follows a day in the life of the band as Beatlemania is in full swing, has been fully restored and will be in cinemas and available to download on July 4. A limited edition DVD and Blu-ray release will follow on July 21.

Directed by Richard Lester and written by Alun Owen, the film also starred Anna Quayle, Bob Godfrey, Robin Ray, Lionel Blair and Patti Boyd.
