Help! The Movie

Episode 1 of 1

HELP! - the sequel to the Fab Four's enormously successful film debut A Hard Day's Night - follows the group on a light-hearted jaunt around the globe. When a fan sends Ringo an ancient sacrificial ring that becomes stuck on his finger, he is targeted by a group of hilariously-obsessed oriental mystics, as well as an ambitious scientist who has his own plans for the ring. On the run, the Beatles are chased from London to the Swiss Alps to the Bahamas, outwitting their pursuers, singing great songs and having a ball. The film, directed by Richard Lester and featuring public television favorite Leo McKern (Rumpole of the Bailey), has recently been remastered and looks and sounds better than ever! The soundtrack includes the following Beatles favorites: "Help!," "The Night Before," "From Me To You," "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away," "I Need You," "Another Girl," "Ticket to Ride" and "You're Gonna Lose That Girl." Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide rates this classic film three and a half stars out of four, describing it as a "crazy, funny film ... Lots of wild gags."
