Exclamation HELP to be released on DVD this October!

Thanks to Asha for the headsup!

Stop Worrying ... Help! Is on the Way!

Apple Corps Ltd Proudly Announce the DVD Release of the Beatles Film
'Help!', October 30th (PRNewsFoto/Apple Coprs LTD)

LONDON, Sept. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Apple Corps Ltd have announced the
eagerly anticipated DVD release of The Beatles' second feature film 'Help!'
on October 30th (October 29th ROW) which will be marketed and distributed
by EMI Music.

(Photo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20070904/LATU079)

Directed by Richard Lester, who also directed the band's debut feature
film 'A Hard Days Night', 'Help!' made its theatrical debut in 1965. The
story follows The Beatles as they become passive recipients of an outside
plot that revolves around Ringo's possession of a sacrificial ring, which
he cannot remove from his finger. As a result, he and his bandmates John,
Paul and George are chased from London to the Austrian Alps and the
Bahamas by religious cult members, a mad scientist and the London police.

In addition to starring the Beatles, 'Help!' has a witty script, a
great cast of British character actors and features 7 classic Beatles
tracks, including:
-- 'Help!'
-- 'You're Going To Lose That Girl'
-- 'You've Got To Hide Your Love Away'
-- 'Ticket To Ride'
-- 'I Need You'
-- 'The Night Before'
-- 'Another Girl'

The DVD will be a 2-disc set. Disc 1 will feature the original film
digitally restored with a newly created 5.1 soundtrack, while Disc 2
contains an hour of extra features, including:
-- The Beatles in Help! -- 30 minute documentary about the making of the
film with Richard Lester, the cast and crew. Includes exclusive behind
the scenes footage of The Beatles on set.
-- A Missing Scene -- Featuring Wendy Richard
-- The Restoration of Help! -- An in depth look at the restoration
process.
-- Memories of Help! -- The cast and crew reminisce
-- Theatrical Trailers -- 2 US trailers and 1 Spanish trailer.
-- 1965 US Radio Spots -- Hidden in disc menus.

There will be 2 editions of the DVD -- a standard digipack and a deluxe
boxed set that will contain a reproduction of Richard Lester's original
annotated script, 8 lobby cards and a poster, plus a 60-page book with
rarely seen photographs and production notes from the movie. Both the
deluxe book and the standard booklet feature an introduction by Richard
Lester and an appreciation by Martin Scorsese.

More important, their superiority is consistent: each of the songs from their last three albums is memorable. The best of these memorable tunes—and the best is a large percentage (Here, There and Everywhere, Good Day Sunshine, Michelle, Norwegian Wood)—compare with those by composers from great eras of song: Monteverdi, Schumann, Poulenc."

Yes! Best news so far this week!

I guess 62hofner was right all those months ago when he said this was coming!

Good. It's been long overdue a DVD release.

Maybe we can expect Let It Be soon after. Err, on second thoughts, maybe not.

Coolio.

I'm sure it will look and sound great.

How many of you will be picking up the Deluxe version? I can't help myself, I know I will.

This would fit in my DVD rack nicely. A couple of weeks late but it will still be a great birthday present.
