L.A. Film Critics Assn. to honor director Richard Lester
 - Tuesday, October 15, 2013

The Los Angeles Film Critics Assn. announced Saturday afternoon that director Richard Lester, who helmed the influential classic Beatles' film musicals, 1964's "A Hard Day's Night" and 1965's "Help!," is the recipient of the organization's career achievement honor.

The honor will be presented at the L.A. Film Critics Assn. awards ceremony Jan. 11 at theIntercontinental Hotel in Century City. Previous honorees include directors Paul Mazursky and Frederick Wiseman and actors Doris Day and Jean-Paul Belmondo. A child prodigy, the 81-year-old Lester began studying at the University of Pennsylvania at the age of 15. He started working in TV about 1950 and moved to London in 1953, where he worked as a director in indie TV. His 1960 short "The Running Jumping & Standing Still Film," which he made with "Goon Show" starsPeter Sellers and Spike Milligan earned an Oscar nomination.  The Beatles loved the Goons and the short film, and he proved to be a perfect fit for the group's first film,  "A  Hard Day's Night."

Review: Paul McCartney sounds revitalized in 'New'
 - Monday, October 14, 2013

71-year-old Paul McCartney comes off effortlessly contemporary as well as hummably Beatle-esque when it suits him in this well-crafted new album. Great, just what the world needs: more enthusiasm for something Beatles-related.
