The Beatles in the Bahamas while filming Help!

Very desirable vintage glossy 8 x 10 promotional photo of the Beatles on location in the Bahamas during filming for their second motion picture, Help!, signed in black felt tip by John Lennon and George Harrison, and in blue felt tip by Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, with another hand adding an inscription above: “To Linda, love from the Beatles.” In very good to fine condition, with light overall creasing, lightly trimmed edges, and small areas of toning at the corners from old tape stains on the back. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tracks.

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.
