According to Billboard, The Beatles’ Help! will be released in a double-DVD edition on October 30, digitally restored with a new 5.1 audio soundtrack. The second disc will contain “a 30-minute documentary about the making of the movie, a missing scene, a featurette on the restoration process, interviews with cast and crew, three theatrical trailers and vintage radio advertisements.”
There will also be a boxed set that features “a reproduction of director Richard Lester’s original script and a 60-page book with rare photos and production notes.”
This will be the third time Help! has been released on DVD, but it’s been off the market since 2000 “due to rights issues.” I wonder what those issues are. And more importantly, when the fuck are they going to release Let It Be? Seriously, EMI, get your shit together regarding the Beatles.
