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
A miniaturized Paul is wearing flesh-colored bathing trunks during his brief (no pun intended) "nude scene" in "The Exciting Adventures of Paul On The Floor". The discarded chewing gum wrapper which he uses to wrap around himself as a towel is clearly labeled Wrigley's Spearmint Gum. See more »
As mentioned in "Crazy Credits", during the opening credits each time a dart hits the projector screen a credit appears. The color of the credit matches the color of the dart, except for the "Produced by Walter Shenson" credit. (The dart is red but the credit is green.) See more »
I like operations. They give you a sense of outlook, don't they?

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 »
Paul Rutan, Jr. single-handedly restored this movie within four years. The master negative had over 15 tears, imbedded dirt, and faded color. This restored version also features over-dubbed music for musical sequences because of the age of the existing soundtracks. The restored version of Help! (1965) premiered on American Movie Classics in 1995 and is the current version availible on video and DVD. See more »
A great movie. People here seem to complain the plotline was too silly. But keep in mind this was during the Bond phase(almost a forerunner to Get Smart). A sacrificial ring caught on the Famous Ringo's finger. A mad scientist trying to take over the world. An evil cult trying to kill our heroes. A girl from that cult secretly helping our heroes. Typical Bondish plotlines.
It also has great one-liners(Maybe it's that I'm just your average 14 year old American who loves British humor), and just weird ones that sound funny. "I don't subscribe to your religion." "He's out to rule the world if he can get a government grant." "Now, look here, Paul. I've had some great times with this finger. How do you know I wouldn't miss it?"
And, of course, greeeeeaaaaat music.
