Deleted from Help!









50 years ago the Beatles filmed a big scene that was deleted from the film, Help!.   All that remains are these stills from that day.

  1. These are great! Do you mean to say they got rid of the extra scenes, they discarded the film bits? That's a total shame! I had hopes we'd see them one day.

    1. Unfortunately at that time, deleted scenes and bloopers were discarded, thrown out. Only a few survived. Now, everything is saved.

    2. Thank you, Jeanette. I guess people at the time didn't realize how big the boys would be so many years later!

  2. That's British comedian Frankie Howerd (yes, with an "erd") in most of the photos you posted. He plays an acting teacher named Sam Ahab and the Beatles attend his school - the "Sam Ahab School of Transcendental Elocution". Howerd was upset when his scene was cut. He later appeared as Mean Mr. Mustard in the Bee Gees' 1978 film fiasco, "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band".

  6. The blonde in the lower pics is Wendy Richard,, who played Miss Brahms in Are You Being Served. I had read about a scene with her being cut.
