Help! (VHS) The Beatles
After the playful day-in-the-life comedy of A Hard Day's Night, director Richard Lester led the Beatles through an even more off-kilter romp in this, their second feature. A musical spoof of a James Bond movie, the action tracks the Fab Four to the four corners of the earth with a fanatical religious cult in constant pursuit. It seems they're after a divine relic that has fallen into, or rather onto, Ringo's unwitting hand. While not quite as masterful a film as A Hard Day's Night, Help! brims with visual ideas and exuberant adventure. The avalanche of clever sight gags would give the Austin Powers movies a run for their money. The songs remain magnificent, and they come at a relentless pace: "Ticket to Ride" is performed amid skiing hijinks on the Swiss Alps; Stonehenge affords "The Night Before" a gloomy backdrop; and "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away" glistens in an intimate studio performance. Digitally remastered and with 15 minutes of bonus footage, this is a wonderful new edition of a rock 'n' roll classic.
This is a previously viewed VHS tape in very good condition!
