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
Before the ski shot in the Austrian Alps, The Beatles told Lester that they never skied before. Lester handed them skies and told them, "What better time to learn, find a hill, and PRACTICE!" Lester said in a later interview, "We set cameras to follow them around, then gave those tapes to the Editor to create parts of the 'Ticket to Ride' scene." See more »
At the very end as Bhuta runs away from Clang on the beach and leaves the other prisoners being marched to prison, the extra following him gives a "thumbs up" at the camera. See more »

...What kind of movie, you might ask? Comedy? Spy Thriller? Or just zany madcap nonsense? It doesn't matter. I've seen it many times over the past 30 years and it just gets better with age. The music of course, is phenomenal-and you don't have to be a die-hard Beatles fan to appreciate this musical comedy masterpiece.
