The Beatles Come to America
Paul McCartney gives a thumbs-up to screaming fans at New York’s John F. Kennedy Library. 50 years ago today the Fab Four arrived at New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport, on their first visit to the United States on February 7, 1964.
This Week in Universal News: The Beatles Come to America

On this day, fifty years ago, the Beatles landed at New York City’s recently renamed John F. Kennedy airport. Here’s the report from Universal, complete with John, Paul, George, and Ringo’s trademark charm, screaming teenagers, and a condescending narrator that clearly does not take these Liverpudlians (or their fans) seriously.
From the release sheet:
QUICK, FRED, THE FLIT: There are rumors around that this is Britain’s revenge for the Boston Tea Party. You guessed it … the Beatles have arrived in the United States for their first appearance before an idolizing teen-age crowd, with the St. Vitus bounce. They take an airing in Central Park. No. There is no truth to the buzz that the Zoo’s laughing hyena was driven underground.
