The Beatles’ ‘Help!’ Coming to Blu-ray

The Beatles Help Blu-ray
Subafilm Ltd.

The Beatles‘ 1965 movie ‘Help!’ is finally coming to Blu-ray. The remastered disc will be available on June 25 with a beefed-up soundtrack and more than an hour’s worth of bonus material.

‘Help!’ followed the Beatles’ first film, 1964’s ‘A Hard Day’s Night,’ into theaters at the height of Beatlemania. Directed by Richard Lester, who also was behind the camera for  ‘A Hard Day’s Night,’ ‘Help!’ — the Beatles’ first color movie — focuses on Ringo and a special ring that gets stuck on his finger. The Fab Four are then chased across Europe by various sinister parties.

The movie features some of the Beatles’ best songs, including ‘You’re Going to Lose That Girl,’ ‘You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away,’ ‘Ticket to Ride’ and the title track, all of which are performed like the ’60s version of music videos.

In addition to featuring a newly remastered 5.1 soundtrack, the Blu-ray includes a 30-minute documentary about the making of the film. Director Lester shares some memories and behind-the-scenes footage. Other extras include an outtake from the movie, some trailers, radio spots, remembrances from the cast and crew and a look at the restoration process. Renowned director Martin Scorsese also penned a new appreciation in the Blu-ray’s booklet.

‘Help!’ follows two other recent Beatles features on Blu-ray, the animated ‘Yellow Submarine‘ and the terrible ‘Magical Mystery Tour.’ Now if they can only somehow wrangle the rights to the long-missing ‘Let It Be.’
