Help! is the last of The Beatles‘ sixties films to make it onto blu-ray.
After the almost cinéma vérité of 1964′s A Hard Day’s Night, Help! was a rather lightweight piece of nonsense, with a plot that has ‘the boys’ trotting the globe trying to avoid the baddies who are after Ringo’s ring. Despite this, the excellent songs and seeing The Beatles in glorious technicolor more than make up for all the silliness.
The blu-ray will include a 5.1 surround soundtrack, and contains an hour of extra features, including a 30-minute documentary about the making of the film, memories of the cast and crew, an in-depth look at the restoration process, an outtake scene, and original theatrical trailers and radio spots.
Help! is released on blu-ray on 24 June 2013.
