Directed by Richard Lester, who also directed the bands debut feature film
A Hard Days Night, Help! made its theatrical debut in 1965. The story
follows The Beatles as they become passive recipients of an outside plot that
revolves around Ringo's possession of a sacrificial ring, which he cannot remove
from his finger. As a result, he and his bandmates John, Paul and George are
chased from London to the Austrian Alps and the Bahamas by religious cult
members, a mad scientist and the London police.
In addition to starring the Beatles, Help! has a witty script, a great cast of
British character actors and features 7 classic Beatles tracks.
"The moptops' second movie was a Swinging London goof, but the soundtrack was a smashing time, including the classics "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away" and "Ticket to Ride," and the lovely "I've Just Seen a Face." Help! didn't break new ground, but it paved the way for the Beatles' next stop: Rubber Soul." - www.rollingstone.com
"Lennon claimed that this composition of his was the first heavy-metal song. For his part, McCartney played lead guitar. 'We almost invented the idea of a new bit of a song on the fade-out,' he said of 'Ticket.' 'It was quite radical at the time.'" - Rolling Stone
