Welcome to Stop Worrying: A Tribute To "HELP!" This page is my humble tribute to the Beatles' second film, which was first released on July 29, 1965. Here you will find a detailed summary with screencaps, sounds, photos, information on deleted scenes, and more!
You might be wondering, of all the Beatles' noteworthy accomplishments, why create a site devoted solely to "HELP!"? It wasn't as well-received as the classic "A Hard Day's Night," nor was it as groundbreaking as "Yellow Submarine." It has a goofy, far-fetched plot and off-the-wall characters. The Beatles would later dismiss the script, complaining they were treated as extras in their own movie. And, let's face it, the lads were most likely stoned throughout the entire filming. :-) Even the most devoted Beatles fans will admit that this is not a classic piece of filmmaking by any means.
So why a site devoted to "HELP!"? Simple. I love it. I have an unhealthy obsession with it. So one day, I decided to combine my weird "HELP!" fetish with my love of web design, and here are results. I hope you enjoy it! Just select one of the links below, or use the menu to your left. Comments and suggestions welcome!
A listing of the cast and crew of "HELP!" Eventually, this section will also have descriptions of all the major characters.
A detailed summary of the film, including a gallery of images captured from the film. This section will be quite large. At the moment, the first 17 pages are up, with 498 screencaps!
A collection of "HELP!" photos that I've scanned or found throughout the web. There are currently 377 photos in this section, with more on the way!
A collection of sounds from the film. All sounds are in .wav format. There are currently 47 sounds available!
Information and photos (where available) on several scenes that never made it into the final cut of "HELP!" There are three scenes up so far, with 42 photos! And there are several more on the way.
Track listings and information on the U.K. and U.S. editions of the "HELP!" soundtrack. *UNDER CONSTRUCTION!*
A few fun "HELP!"-related things I've been working on. Check out the "HELP!" jigsaw puzzles, and the results of polls I've conducted in the past.
