Door panels are amongst the rarest posters distributed to cinemas in America. The cinemas had to pay a lot more for these compared to the regular posters, and therefore only flagship cinemas ordered them. They were also printed in extremely small quantities compared to the main posters. These are the most sought-after posters on the film, and do not surface very often. 

This musical comedy was directed by Richard Lester, after his success with A Hard Day's Night the previous year. The Beatles are the main stars of the film, however it also features many other famous actors. The film premiered on the 29th July 1965 at the London Pavilion Theatre, and a week later the film's soundtrack was released as an album.
