Iconic Help! jackets go on display at the Beatles Story for one week only


In 1965 The Beatles travelled to The Alps to film for their upcoming film Help!. Whilst filming, the fab four can be seen dressed in near matching outfits, the same outfits that also appear on the iconic album cover for Help!.

Almost 50 years after the scene was filmed and the album cover photograph was taken, George Harrison and Ringo Starr's jackets have ended up in Liverpool and are currently on display in our exhibition.

Help!, directed by Richard Lester, sees the group come up against an evil cult and fleeing to the Austrian Alps to seek refuge. The jackets have come from Lester’s private collection.  The 82 year old, was one of the most influential directors of the 1960s, directing The Beatles' first film A Hard Day’s NightHelp! and films such as Superman during the 1980s.

Martin King from the Beatles Story said, “There is plenty interest in Dick Lester’s Beatles films as they reach their 50th anniversaries this year and next. I would recommend visitors come and view these famous Help! jackets whilst they are on display at the Beatles Story”.

The jackets will on display at the Beatles Story for a short period of time and will leave the exhibition on Wednesday 19th March, when they will be sent to the Adelphi Hotel to be auctioned on 20th March.

Auctioneer Paul Fairweather says, “As Beatles clothing goes these have got to be amongst the Holy Grail for any Beatles collector."
