Yea, it's something of a travesty that there's little or no fuss being made about it. It's just as good a AHDN in its own way. The perfect follow-up. A goofy colorful send-up of the spy/chase operas of the day. Some great music too. And it's really one of only two real flicks the guys made. I mean, they could hardly be bothered with being involved in YS, and LIB isn't even worth a second viewing.

Well, no matter, I suppose. It's there for us to enjoy anyway.

All's a bit quiet
Why isn't there a huge thing about 1965 and The Beatles?

In Britain, post 9/11, we have war, war and war. It's quite dull. I think the obsession with such things are to hide the fact that we're living in an appalling time.

Shouldn't 'Help!', in 2015, be more worshipped than 1965?

Probably not, seeing its not actually any good. Deserves no more reverence than Spiceworld would deserve half a century hence, or the movie One Direction are probably going to make.
I think even at the time it was seen for what it is - a way of making more money for its shareholders. Nought wrong with that - it's what keeps the entertainment industry going - but these things generally dont deserve worship. It is what it is.
Ps I like now. Now is good.

I realize that this post and string is a few years old now but I just stumbled upon it and thought I would contribute what I could. I have this same exact picture. It is printed on heavy card stock, almost like a post card but mine is in very good condition being as it has been kept in a 5x7 frame for the last 50 years. Let me give you a bit of the back story as to how I got mine.

I have cousins who live in Liverpool England (and still do as far as I know). My grandparents were very close with them and used to go visit every couple of years. In early 1964 I was 6 years old and absolutely a huge Beatles fan already. I absolutely loved them. When I found out my grandparents were going over to England for a visit, in my youthful innocence I asked if they could get me their autographs (as if it were that easy). As it turned out my relatives there lived only a couple of blocks from where Ringo's mother lived. Not wanting to disappoint their American cousin They took my grandparents over to the house and knocked on her door to see what they might be able to get for me. There is more to this part of the story but the short version is that Ringo's mom invited them in and after some conversation gave them this card to give to me.

What I am about to tell you is the explanation that Mrs. Starkey gave to my grandparents about what this photo actually is. This photo was a promotional piece the boys had printed up in limited quantities to give to the parents (or other family members) for just such an occasion. This is why yours is signed by Mrs. Harrison, Georges mother. They were only given to family members. It was intended to be a hand out, to give to, and hopefully satisfy, fans who might come around looking for a "piece of something" from their favorite Beatle, to keep them from tearing off shingles or shutters or doormats or whatever, to have a piece of Beatles memorabilia. This story was verified and discussed many times throughout my life with my grandparents, so it is a first hand account, and I have every reason to believe it is true.

Furthermore, While it is true that Brian Epstein (their manager) or Mal Evans (longtime friend) would frequently sign promos for the boys I have spent many years researching the signatures and have found them to be authentic. Not original, they did not sign every photo, they are reproduced, but authentic. Unfortunately mine does not have a signature on the back as yours does.

If you read this, I hope it helps you. In closing, being as you are not a Beatles fan (and I still am ;)), I would be happy to take it off your hands to have as a companion piece to mine.

Good grief Kathy! Has the world gone nuts?

Seems that way! Some areas -- not ours, I hope -- are supposed to get 3 to 5 inches.

We're having great(!) weather recently. 70-80 in the day and 50's at night.

We're having great(!) weather recently. 70-80 in the day and 50's at night. Garden is 2/3 planted with 250 bush beans, 30 Brussels sprouts, tomato's, broccoli, spaghetti squash, zucchini, peppers etc.. I've got 36 more holes to fill and thought I'd do some cabbage and a few more squashes, cucumbers etc...

We could use some rain but only at night!

I'd have thought that the owners of the distribution rights for Help should have done a 50th anniversary release.  The trouble is they've already shot their wad on the extras a few years ago. Unless they can find some special hook then all the people who were interested in a DVD of Help would have bought it seven or eight years ago when the special edition came out.

Still. Not very imaginative marketing.
