The slow-motion scene in Help!, in which The Beatles fall victim to Professor Foot’s relativity cadenza, was completed on this day. The sequence had been begun on the previous day.
Filming took place at Twickenham Film Studios, England. After it was complete, director Richard Lester had no need for The Beatles to appear in the day’s other scenes, which involved studio and location work.
