Stop worrying...Help! Is on the way! Apple Corps Ltd have announced the eagerly anticipated DVD release of The Beatles' second feature film 'Help!' on November 5th, which will be marketed and distributed by EMI Music.
Directed by Richard Lester, who also directed the band's 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 band mates John, Paul and George are chased from London to the Austrian Alps and the Bahamas by religious cult members, a mad scientist & 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, including:
'Help!' 'You're Going To Lose That Girl' 'You've Got To Hide Your Love Away' 'Ticket To Ride' 'I Need You' 'The Night Before' 'Another Girl'
