Beautiful image. Another example of the Beatles' incredible luck was Richard Lester being the director of A Hard Day's Night and Help. He provided the perfect cinematic counterpart to the sound of their music circa 64-65: explicitly adventurous but still widely acceptable.

Help! had more deft humor and clever visual gags than most other comedies ever made, before or since - comedy on TV & film weren't the same after this one. The attack on the Salisbury Plain recording session isn't just a model for war films, it's hilarious! And what a cast!
