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
The Hindu god that Klang and his occult worships is "Kali" (Also known as Kali-Ma). Kali is the eastern equivalent to the "Grim Reaper". She is also the god worshiped by the occult in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984). See more »
When Bhuta jumps out of the Good Year blimp to lay the plan to trap the Beatles, there is a wide shot of the stuntman playing Bhuta jumping out of the blimp. Watch the bottom of the screen, and you'll see the stuntman's head bounce back into the frame after landing on an obvious crash mat. So, the blimp wasn't as high in the sky as the filmmakers were trying to make it appear. Afterwards, there is a shot of a horribly fabricated dummy hanging where Bhuta is supposed to be hanging (too skinny, and the arms are too long). See more »

Well, you're very polite, aren't you?

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 »
...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.
