A few years ago, I tried to find a streaming network that offered The Beatles ‘Help’ movie. No luck. I ended up ordering a used DVD through the Amazon marketplace. I thought I was getting a single movie DVD, but what arrived was this. It’s a box set with movie DVD and a 2nd DVD of special features.
Also in the box is a coffee table book of photos and other images from the movie set. Here is the unboxing and various pieces.
And, then the pièce de résistance: A copy of the movie script, with someone’s handwritten notes on the pages.
Here’s one of my favorite scenes in the movie, and the corresponding pages in the script.
I researched the box set. It was produced in 2007, and it apparently also included some postcards and a movie poster. Those had been removed from my set, but I don’t mind. I got the DVD I wanted and so much more.
Confession: I’m not a buyer of box sets. They typically cost buku dollars and I’m thrifty. So this is just about the only box set I own that would be worthy of this draft. But I think I would have chosen this box set for the draft even if I had quite a few to choose from.
If you want to know more about the ‘Help’ soundtrack, you need only look back at Round 11, Pick 4, where the soundtrack was picked by Badfinger (Max).
