Sir George Henry Martin CBE
(3 January 1926 – 8 March 2016)

George Martin, who produced all those wonderful Beatles records, has passed away at 90.

I’ve probably spent more time in the presence of George Martin’s work than any other human — except for The Beatles themselves. One of the things that always struck me about Martin was that as much of a genius as he was, he seemed so humble — never really taking credit for his monumental contribution of the human experience. We should all learn something from that.

Hard Days Night 35mm

This being a movie blog, here are some frames from a 35mm print of A Hard Day’s Night (1964) — which Martin scored.
