The Beatles in Help!
Saturday, May 4, 2013, 5:00 p.m.
Dir. Richard Lester. 1965, 92 mins. 35mm. With The Beatles. When Ringo gets in a jam with an evil cult over a sacrificial ring and some red paint, The Beatles have to find a way to rescue their friend without sacrificing themselves. In pure Richard Lester style, Help! is a fast-paced madcap delight. Chased by everyone from cultists to mad scientists to Scotland Yard, the Fab Four flee from Swinging London to the Alps, to the Bahamas, and through World War II re-enactments, and of course still finding time to stop for the occasional performance.
