The Beatles’ classic Help! heads on to Blu-ray

The Beatles second ever feature film, Help!, is being given a high definition digital makeover and will appear on Blu-ray 47 years after its original release.

The original comedy movie, directed by Dick Lester, follows John, Paul and George as they attempt to rescue Ringo after he finds himself the target of the notorious “Clang” cult. It’s a race against time for the band mates as they are chased not only by Clang and his minions, but also by two mad scientists and the chief inspector of Scotland Yard. The soundtrack to the movie, featuring Beatles classics including Ticket To Ride, You’re Going To Lose That Girl and the title track Help!, provides the perfect backdrop to this ground-breaking movie.

Beatles fans will be excited to hear that the Blu-ray edition of Help! will feature an introduction by director Richard Lester and an appreciation by acclaimed director Martin Scorsese. In addition to the digital restoration and the  5.1 soundtrack the Blu-ray will also include an hour of extra features, including a 30-minute documentary on the making of the film, memories from the cast and crew, original theatrical trailers and radio spots.
