April 1964: The Beatles hugely enjoyed the making of A Hard Day’s Night, but none more so than George, who, aside from making a very impressive screen debut, met his girlfriend and wife-to-be Pattie Boyd on the set. The pretty model was chosen to play an obsessed teenager trailing the Beatles as they made their way to London onboard a train. George instantly acknowledged her undeniable beauty and immediately made a play for her. Within weeks, they were an item.
Pattie: "I asked them all for their autographs, except for John — I was too scared. When I asked George for his, I asked him to sign it for my two sisters as well, and he signed his named put two kisses each for them, but under mine her put seven kisses. So I though, "He must like me a little.""
