The Beatles in Help! and other extras on the Help! DVD were all quite fascinating to me
Having watched the movie on Disc 1, I then viewed all the extras on Disc 2 of which this was one of them. Director Richard Lester, along with player Eleanor Bron, some stunt men, and future music director Steve Barron, provide some good comments about the film and the experience of working with four lads who only had one movie experience beforehand. Yes, both Barron and Lester comment about Lester's being basically being the father of MTV. Yes, Paul, George, John, and Ringo are represented by vintage audio clips only. Yes, there are behind the scenes segments and clips of screaming girls whenever The Beatles were in public. It's all pretty fascinating watching all the remembrances in this and other extras like Memories of Help!, The Restoration of Help!, A Missing Scene (in which the lady in that one, Wendy Richard, discusses what went on in it while the stills of that scene are all that's available now), and then watching and listening to some theatrical trailers, and 6 radio spots was also fascinating to me. In all, quite fascinating finds.
