The Beatles’ work on their second feature film Help! ended on this day, with some extra audio recording at Twickenham Film Studios.
This was a continuation of the work done almost a month earlier on 18 May 1965. No music, major portions of dialogue or full scenes were added, but The Beatles overdubbed speech and sound effects where needed.
