Help! turns fifty
50 years ago, the Beatles' second motion picture "Help!" premiered at the London Pavilion, Piccadilly Circus, London, with The Beatles in attendance. Princess Margaret was there, too, making it a "Royal" world premiere, as the ticket says.
Crowds began to gather at 8:00 a.m., and by evening ten thousand fans were gathered outside to see Paul, George and Ringo arrive in a black Rolls-Royce; John’s Rolls-Royce delayed twenty minutes because of the crowd surge. Inside the Pavilion the band met Princess Margaret and Lord Snowdon, who had held off their summer holiday for the event. After the screening, The Beatles appeared at the supper party at the Orchid Room of the Dorchester Hotel attended by most of the film’s principals, including director Richard Lester, and co-stars Eleanor Bron, Victor Spinetti, Leo McKern, and Roy Kinnear. The movie was a box-office success with overall good reviews. The BBC television show Top Of The Pops also showed a clip from the film on this evening.
For the anniversary, the South Pasadena Library in California will host a free screening of the film tomorrow, on July 30. The film is rarely being screened publically any more, but the South Pasadena Library arranged this event with special permission from the Beatles company, Apple Corps Ltd. The commercial Blu-ray will be used as source for the screening. The event begins at 6:30 p.m. No tickets or reservations are required.

This book applies theoretical models that reflect the fluid, mediated, hybrid, and nomadic global scenes within which GenX artists and writers live, think, and work in Spain. Henseler touches on critical insights in comparative media studies, cultural studies, and social theory, and conveys the nuances of multiple voices, facts, figures, and faces.
