The Beatles - He !

|New from||Used from|
Following the success of Hard Day's Night, the Fab-Four and director Richard Lester pooled their talents once again for the film initially titled Eight Arms to Hold You, before everyone involved decided on the better-known Help!. Fanciful and fantastical, it is a kind of Beatles-in-Wonderland story, with our lovable mop-tops running from a religious cult that believe the ring on Ringo's finger is a prized and sacred object. Entering a world of steadfast nonsense, it's gags-galore as the gang go on a surreal and swinging adventure while singing "Ticket to Ride" and "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away" in Bahamian, Austrian and English settings. The Marx Brothers influences are prevalent in this very funny musical.

The director calls Help! a "Pop Art fantasy." It was written at the end of 1964, and the director's intro in the booklet enclosed puts the film into its cultural context. The second intro is by Martin Scorsese, and his insights are well worth having too.
The locations are arbitrary and delightful. I especially loved the scene of the Beatles skiing and playing in the snow in the Austrian Alps. It was also exhilarating to watch them perform on a scrubby beach in the Bahamas and on a field on Salisbury Plain.
Two stars for the plot. Five stars for the Beatles and the film’s production values.
Just get it!
The picture now really jumps out at you and like another reviewer said- great job guys and gals!
Can't really review the sound too much because i have a Bose sound system for my tv and it makes everything sound great but it's not like a 7 channel home system or anything- it's just to bring out the best sound from your tv.
John Lennon wrote me two letters which to this day I treasure , saw them in person at Cinn. Ohio in 1966.
They were awesome along with the screams of fans.
When dad died January 8, 1981 a month after John was killed I wrote YOGO ONO she mailed Christmas cards with photos of herself and
Sean, he was so cute in the photos. Will treasure them forever.
Beatles live forever in my heart.
