Filming: Help!

Following three weeks of filming in the Bahamas and Austria, work on Help! continued at Twickenham Film Studios, where much of A Hard Day’s Night had been shot the previous year.

The Beatles worked on Help! at Twickenham for a number of days until 16 June 1965. Filming took place until 9 May, after which a great deal post-production work was carried out.

During this first week, The Beatles filmed interior temple scenes, including a sequence in which John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison escape inside a sacrificial altar and swim to safety.
