4 Ringo Starr Movies That Prove His Talent as an Actor

Monday, May 15, 2023

Ringo Starr is known, first and foremost, as a drummer, but he appeared in multiple movies over the course of his career. All of The Beatles picked up some acting experience, but Starr took steps to build a career as an actor. Not all of his movies performed well – even the drummer’s biggest fans should avoid a few of them — but some are worth a watch. Here are four of Starr’s movies worth putting on your to-watch list.Starr’s first movie is also one of his best. In 1964, The Beatles released A Hard Day’s Night, a musical comedy film in which the band played themselves. The film gave Starr a good deal of screen time — he chaperones Paul McCartney’s grandfather and gets arrested.

While director Richard Lester believed George Harrison was the best actor in the film, he also said that Starr had the showiest part in the movie. He has a similarly prominent role in the second Beatles film, Help!, but A Hard Day’s Night is the better movie.
