The Beatles are bringing back their second feature film, Help!, on Blu-Ray with some special outtakes, interviews and trailers, as well as a 30-minute documentary on the making of the movie. In this exclusive clip, director Richard Lester, director of photography David Watkin, hair and make-up artist Betty Glasow and costume designer Julie Harris share their memories of working on Help! and offer candid tidbits about the experience.
"We spent quite a lot of time on post-production," Lester says on achieving the vibrant color of Help! "We took two frames of every shot in the film, put them up on a light box, and played around with color filters until chose which filter we were putting in . . . we did it for every shot in the film."
The digitally restored Blu-ray version of Help! is available Tuesday on Amazon and the Beatles' catalog is available on iTunes.
