Help! world premiere after-party menu
Description  

Original 4.5 x 7 menu for the supper party following the Royal World Premiere of Help!, held at the Dorchester Hotel on Thursday, July 29, 1965. Signed on the front cover in blue ballpoint, “George Harrison” and “Pattie Boyd,” and in pencil “Paul McCartney” and “Jane Asher”; signed and inscribed in black ballpoint on the inside front cover, “To Dottie, what happened to Bernard on his birthday? Love, John Lennon xx,” and “For Aunt Dot I luv yer, Victor Spinetti,” adding a self-caricature next to his signature; signed on the adjacent opening page in pencil, “Ringo Starr,” and in blue ballpoint “Thank you Bernard for a lovely evening, Cynthia,” “Love, Patrick Kerr,” “Patrick Cargill,” and “There you go! Roy Kinnear!”; and signed on the following page, “Neil Aspinall, Stanley that me,” with an arrow pointing to the word lemon on the menu, and additionally signed and inscribed by one other on the reverse of the first page. In fine condition. The Beatles' second full-length feature film, Help!, had its royal premiere at the London Pavilion, Piccadilly Circus, London, where 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. 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. As the premiere was taking place, Help! went on general release in several seaside towns around England. Complete band-signed menus from this event are quite scarce, even more so with the addition of several of the film’s co-stars. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.
