An Eastern cult discovers that the sacrificial ring is missing. Ringo, drummer of The Beatles band has it; sent by the girl (who's to be sacrificed) as a gift. Clang, Ahme, Bhuta and several cult members leave for London to retrieve the ring. After several failed attempts to steal the ring, they confront him in an Indian restaurant. Ringo learns that if he does not return the ring soon, he will become the next sacrifice. Ringo then discovers that the ring is stuck on his finger. Its a race against time; John, Paul, and George try to protect their friend while they're all being chased not only by Clang and his minions, but also by two mad scientists and the chief inspector of Scotland yard. Will Ringo be saved, or will he be sacrificed? Written by
When Ringo's watch and stuff get sucked onto the magnetic elevator wall, you can see some of the strings connected to the various items that pull everything to the wall. See more »
[in the Indian restaurant, referring to Ringo]
Excuse me, sirs, but if he is to be sacrificed before the dread Kaili, why is he not painted red?
That's a question I'll never be able to pluck up the courage to ask but as he's me best friend I will.

While the music is playing at the end (Overture from "Il bariere di Siviglia"), the Beatles are jokingly singing along with it and occasionally reading the credits. See more »
"Help" is a nice companion movie to "A Hard Days Night". It is filmed in color, and while it doesn't have the classic look of black and white "Hard Days Night", the script is better, and the Beatles appear more relaxed acting. The music is very good. Ringo, often in the background during in concerts and on recordings, proves he is the best actor of the Fab Four. Paul, John and George come across the screen as genuine and charismatic. "Help!" is filmed in different locations as well, which add to the film's quality. To me, the Beatles are the greatest rock group in history. Before there was MTV, there was "A Hard Days Night" and "Help!". Nothing in music can top that.
