5.0 out of 5 stars Just Plain Fun!!!
Despite the frivolous, not to say silly, plot, "Help!" is just plain fun; and, if one gets past the frantic antics, it is full of delightful puns and allusions (Some are very Goon Show.). The adorable four are supported by an A-1 cast, including Leo McKern, who puts as much zest into his role as the evil Clang as he does into that of Rumpole. Victor Spinetti (who was also...

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit disappointing really
Watched both discs in one sitting last night.

Disc 1 is the film and beyond options for subtitles in various languages there are non extras. It's a sparklng restoration and the sound is perfect. When they're indoors in their terraced house pad for the first time you see that their suits have a light pin stripe. George is reveled as sometimes looking tired a bit...

1.0 out of 5 stars NO BONUS SCENE!, 7 Nov. 2007
By 
A. Saint (London) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Help [DVD] [1965] (DVD)
Forget what you've read - there is NO bonus scene featuring Wendy Richard and Frankie Howerd. What you DO get is Dick Lester and Wendy Richards talking about the scene accompanied by a few stills. I think it is a disgrace that this DVD was and still is being marketed with the promise of a "missing scene".

This is a great package deserving of five stars but it has been rather spoiled by this con so I can only give it one! What a disappointment.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ban False Advertising, 26 Nov. 2007
By 
Robert (St. Neots, Cambs, ENGLAND United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Help [DVD] [1965] (DVD)
We've read it in the press, and we were promised it on the packaging, but the deleted scene with Wendy Richard is NOT included! What the cover should say is: "Wendy Richard talks about the deleted scene". It is disgusting that EMI described this feature as "Deleted scene with Wendy Richard", making us believe that the scene is actually on Disc 2.
Aside from that, the quality is excellent but the film is no match for
"A Hard Day's Night".

5.0 out of 5 stars The sound of the Beatles discovering dope!, 13 Oct. 2003
This review is from: Help! (Audio CD)
Unfairly regarded as not being one of their classics there is not a weak song on the album. Overall it contains catchy songs - some of which have become classics ("Help", "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away", "You're Going To Lose That Girl", "Ticket To Ride" and "Yesterday")- and an air of jaunty self confidence pervades. A genuine classic and probably the best album of 1965.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE FAB FOUR DO IT AGAIN..., 18 Sept. 2001
By 
Lawyeraau (Balmoral Castle) - See all my reviews
(HALL OF FAME REVIEWER)    (TOP 1000 REVIEWER)   
This review is from: Help! (Audio CD)
If you are a fan of The Beatles, then you will love this CD. This is their fifth release, and it is filled with quite a number of excellent songs composed by that dynamic songwriting duo, Lennon/McCartney. There is even a nice little tune by George Harrison, "I Need You". There are only two non-Beatles compositions on this fourteen track CD.
This CD showcases the versatility of the Fab Four. It also shows the musical evolvement of The Beatles. From the wonderful and offbeat "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away" to the lover's warning found in "You're Going To Lose That Girl", the listener is hooked. Follow it up with the rollicking "I've Just Seen A Face" and the beautiful ballad, "Yesterday", and you have a CD well worth having.
While this CD still reflects some of the innocence and youthful exuberance of the early Beatles, it also has an overlay of newly acquired musical sophistication and maturity. It is a portent of things to come.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but Rubber Soul and Revolver are better, 29 Jun. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Help! (Audio CD)
This is a very good Beatles album and, like most of their pre-Rubber Soul work, a little bit of a patchy affair (IMHO). I feel the early Beatles albums were not as good as those they made after 1965 but then again this is understandable due to record company pressure to get material out and the hectic schedule these guys had to contend with until they quit the touring and regular public engagements in '66. This albums does contain some really great tracks - You've Got To Hide Your Love Away (proving that Lennon had mastered Dylan's fock-rock style immaculately), Ticket To Ride (classic Beatles tune and a distant relative of Day Tripper), Yesterday (a timeless love song that also marked a departure away from the traditional orchestration of a "beat" group ensemble) and the rebel-rousing Dizzy Miss Lizzy (the last time the Beatles would would commit a cover version to vinyl on an official release) and of course the title track itself (the first really obvious statement from Lennon that it was getting weary being a Beatle). But, the down side is some of these songs sound like Beatles-on-auto-pilot mode and that they were really rushed to get material recorded for the movie. The better songs do hint a little at what was to follow on the far superior Rubber Soul LP (the next album they released) but too much of this is routine Beatles fare, even though it's an enjoyable album to listen to. It gets 4 stars because of the really good songs on it (those I've mentioned). Like the first 2 LPs, Lennon ends this one with a real rock n roll belter (DML) - if you're not sure about buying this CD let me tell you it's worth buying for that alone!

if you like the Beatles this is one of a few of their that you must have, it makes a cd collection complete (if you have 'Rubber Soul', 'Sgt Peppers' and 'Revolver' that is. There's no denying these are the undesputed kings of rock and roll
