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'

bm2_65.JPGImage Enlarger

 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.

 Best ten seconds! Love that bit. And so did Jimi Hendrix, apparently, since he and the Experience duplicated it in one of their tour-shot home movies and put it in a video.

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

I've been wanting to watch Help ! for about a week and I finally have time. I'm about to put it in!

The intermission is so funny, especially when you watch the movie for the first time.

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

Okay, something I think I've spotted in Help ! (I don't have exact times for this-sorry!)

You have to look quick, it's only on screen but...

When they're at the jewelers, literally the first wide shot of them all in there, don't watch whats going on with Ringo on the right of the screen. Look to the left. George (?) is stood in the corner. 

Is... Is he shoplifting??

It looks like he lifts something out of the box or case or whatever it is and tucks it into an inside pocket on his jacket then moves over to the right to look at the shelves.

Yeah, I've read that before (possibly here?) - that there's occasional background action unrelated to the plot, and that often George is involved! Something that's fun to spot after you've seen the movie a dozen times, or are just particularly observant. (I fall into neither category)

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

This being the 50th anniversary of the movie's release, shouldn't there be a bit more fanfare out there?

A Hard Day's Night was re-released in one movie theater last year in New York.

Though all critics have taken AHDN over Help !, in my experience a number of people prefer Help !

I got my copy of the Deluxe DVD box set (and the BluRay) in the mail yesterday. I'm looking forward to reading through the script. It's a nice package. For those who want it, it's only about 30 dollars from Newbury Comics.

(Also got the MMT box set which is great...I'm giving my old DVD copies of Help ! and MMT, which I think were only played once, to my two nephews tomorrow).

Wouldn't you know, I put my deluxe Help ! box set on the shelf, and when I went to open it again, one of the discs had fallen out and been scratched inside the book.

I suppose I should have looked closer and seen that the discs are held in place by a little round bit of styrofoam-looking packing material. That's a pretty weird packaging idea. Oh well, the disc will still play I'm sure, but that's bad packaging.

Give it  a good wipe down with some good old furniture polish and it should be almost as good as new!

Although I am quite content with my big screen TV, Blu Ray & Surround Sound system, I'm jealous.  Wish they screened the Beatles movies around here. a-hard-days-night-ringo-8
