The Beatles were once again at Twickenham Film Studios on this day, to re-shoot the scene in Help! in which a night club hand dryer sucks excessively in an attempt to steal Ringo Starr’s ring.
Another scene was re-shot on this day: Starr was tethered to a table in a room underneath The Beatles’ recording studio, before being rescued by Ahme, played by Eleanor Bron.
While at Twickenham, the group gave an interview to Radio Luxembourg presenter Chris Denning, the host of the station’s weekly Sunday night show titled The Beatles. John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison were recorded together, while Starr gave a separate interview after filming his scene.
