Help! The Beatles second film and first color movie is coming to Blu-ray. There will not only be a beefed up sound track but more than an hour of bonus material as well. The Help! DVD had been released as a box set and this will be a step up from that.
Help was made in 1965 as a follow “A Hard Days Night” The story focused on a ring that was placed on Ringo’s finger that marked him for death and the bands attempts to have it removed. The chase would take them from skiing in the Alps to sailing in Bermuda.
