One part I find hilarious in this movie is when the guy splashes red paint all over Ringo an he just acts so sad. The trap door part with the tiger is also funny, as well as the bicycle scene; where Paul follows the red footprints and John tells George not to encourage him. The intermission is pretty gear as well.

It bothers me that they cast all white actors to play the Indian parts, but I guess that's just the way things generally were in 1965. And at least they seemingly pointed out the obvious hypocrisy of the practice by hiring English actors to play "actual fake Indians" for the restaurant scene.

As with "A Hard Day's Night", I really don't care for the silly slapstick bits much at all. But Roy Kinnear and (as usual) Victor Spinetti are great as the inept scientists. I also really enjoyed the Inspector or constable or whatever he was - you know, the guy who's overfond of the word "famous".

Some fantastic, practically hallucinogenic colour photography in this film! Especially during the "Another Girl" sequence. That plus the various location shooting and some wild set designs make it an enjoyable film to look at. (Many 'biblers happy to see Paul naked except for a gum wrapper, no doubt, as well!)

3 stars!

Watching Help!, Ringo's pants just fell off...

Bought the Help! Deluxe Box I mentioned somewhere else. It's really cool, has a nice book and a reproduction of the script.

This is the first time I've seen it on a TV, the other few times being a bad quality online version, so I'm going to go back to enjoying it!

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

One of my favorite parts is when George rescues Ringo out of the back of the car and Ringo is all wrapped up in the blanket and he looks all sad and then he says so nonchalantly "Hello." a-hard-days-night-ringo-7I almost die from laughing. I also think that George played a bigger part in this movie than the others. Slightly off topic, but why do AHDN, Help and MMT all revolve around a Ringo-based plot linea-hard-days-night-ringo-4

Look its a thingy! A fiendish thingy!

I think it was because he was the best actor. Maybe they didn't know that for AHDN, but by Help! they should've.

And I agree with Anna about MMT!

Captured from the February 1965 issue of 'Beatles Monthly'

 Never read before that 'Tomorrow Never Knows' was a possible title for 'Help!', even if it probably didn't get very far down the road of actually happening. Quite something to think that the title of one of the Beatles most creative tracks could have instead been the title of their second movie. I wonder what the plot would have been, maybe even more action-packed than 'Help!' as it does have that James Bond feel to it (ie 'Tomorrow Never Dies' which was a Bond film (and very good Sheryl Crow track too)).

And what would John have ended up calling 'Tomorrow Never Knows' if that title had gone? Would it have remained as 'The Void'? 

Questions. Questions.

Oh thats something new for me also. Will bet new information for most of the viewers here. Good find. Exciting that theres still old new information about The Beatles. 

Yeah I think that if this title was used they would of kept The Void. Especially since the void is the dominant/superior phenomenon in the song.

Someone at another site came across this Feel Numb article about the giant boot prop from Help! ending up at John's Kenwood home, so I'm passing it on. It remained there until it succumbed to weather-wear.

The info comes via the Kenwood blog. Here's the "boot" tag at the site.
