Beautiful vintage glossy 8 x 10.25 promotional photo of the Beatles on location in the Bahamas during filming for their second motion picture, Help!, signed in bold black felt tip by John Lennon, George Harrison, Paul McCartney, and Ringo Starr. Affixed to a slightly larger foamcore mount. In fine condition, with some scattered small creases, which do not detract in the least.
On February 22, 1965, the band flew from London to the Bahamas, with a stop in New York, to commence filming on their second movie, Help! Although the Bahamas sequences would be the last to appear in the completed film, it was the first location on the shooting schedule. Authentic examples of Beatles signatures from this period are scarce as they were virtually inaccessible to their fans.
Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from noted Beatles expert Frank Caiazzo, who writes: "The signatures are outstanding examples from the period and this is as nicely as each could have signed on the day. These Bahamas beach 'Help!' photographs were signed by The Beatles and given to members of the film crew as a thank you for their work on the movie after filming wrapped up, in April of 1965. Of those in existence, this one stands out as amongst the best of the best, thus increasing desirability greatly."
