Signed while filming Help! on the River Thames
Description  

Vintage ballpoint signatures of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr on an off-white 5 x 4 sheet of folded business letterhead, signed while filming Help! on April 24, 1965. Also signed on the opposing side by actor Patrick Cargill, who played the superintendent in the film; an unrelated map is drawn on the lower portion of the sheet and various notes are penned on the reverse, as it was a piece of scrap paper. Light scattered staining and soiling, and show-through from notes to reverse, otherwise fine condition. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from the original recipient and a sheet showing six high-quality copies of candid photographs she took of the band members and actors on the film set. Her letter, in part: “During my stay at a house in Strand on the Green, Chiswick, West London, some of the filming of ‘Help’ took place. On Saturday 24 April 1965 the Beatles were filmed being chased along the river side (Thames) and also at a scene at the pub. The Beatles and Paul [sic, Patrick] Cargill sat outside the house in between takes and it was then that I obtained the autographs…on…the first piece of paper that came to hand. I took quite a few photographs of the filming activities.” The pub mentioned, known as The City Barge, is on the Thames. Help! was the second feature film made by the Beatles and is a comedy adventure which sees the group come up against an evil cult. A highly desirable fully signed piece with excellent provenance. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL.
