HELP..............Yourself To Some Fun! May 2, 2010
GENRE: Musical Comedy
CAST: The Beatles, Eleanor Bron, Leo McKern, Victor Spinetti, Roy Kinnear and Patrick Cargill (and deleted, Wendy Richard)
PLOT: Ringo has a ring (ya think?) that is essential to a sacrificial ceremony of an obscure eastern cult. The wearer of the ring must be painted red and sacrificed by moon's end or they select another wearer of the ring. Ringo says fine take the ring, but it won't come off. So off they go on their routine trek of song recording around the world with the cultists and a mad scientist in hot persuit.
RETURN ON INVESTMENT: 9 of 10; It is a big bit of music history. Just as the Beatles revolutionized the song industry, they changed the musical comedy industry too. Had it not been for this movie, "Tommy" by the Who probably never would have been made. And Mtv would only be in dreams.
DVD BONUS: A whole second disc with interviews and commentary by the director, Richard Lester. The deleted scene of Wendy Richard, about the restoration of : the film, the sound track. Memories expressed by other cast and crew, three theatrical trailers.
ADDED NOTES: I don't think anyone should add any notes to anything Beatles. They wrote the notes just fine by themselves.
