    Beatles, Brian Epstein, Neil Aspinall, and Others Signed Help! Royal World Premiere Supper Party Menu (London, 1965). An absolutely amazing assemblage of signatures obtained at the post-premiere supper party at the Dorchester Hotel on July 29, 1965. Included here is the 4.5" x 6.5" front cover (signed on both sides) and four inside pages bearing the evening's French menu (signed on the first two pages). Included are all the Beatles (at least once), John's wife, Paul and George's girlfriends, their manager, road manager, record producer, movie director, Paul's brother, and various cast members of Help! All the autographs are in ink, clear and bold. Signed as follows.
    Front cover: "Best ever/ Victor Spinetti" ("Foot" in Help!), "To Joan/ Love from/ George Harrison/xxxxxx", "John Lennon", and "Richard Lester" (director of Help!).
    Inside front cover: "Brian Epstein" (manager), "Victor Spinetti" (see above), "Paul McCartney/ xxx", "Pattie Boyd", "with Love/ John Lennon/ xx", and "Ringo Starr/ xxx".
    Inside, page one: "Love from/ George Martin", "Cynthia Lennon/ xxx", "There you go!/ Roy Kinnear" ("Algernon" in Help!), "George Harrison", "Jane Asher", "Love/ Michael McGear/ Scaffold" (Paul's brother), and "Love, Judy" (George Martin's girlfriend).
    Inside, page two: "Neil Aspinall" (road manager) and "Patrick Cargill" ("Superintendent" in Help!).
    It would be hard to locate a better grouping of Beatle and related signatures in one offering. Note that there are two separate Lennon and two separate Harrison autographs. Light soiling and vintage tape staining along the edge of the front cover that would mat out. Fine overall. COA from Heritage Auctions.
