    Beatles Collection of Fourteen Original Color Snapshots Taken by a Vacationer during the Filming of Help! in the Bahamas. A treasure trove of never-published looks behind the scenes of the Beatles second feature film taken on Paradise Island in the Bahamas. These are all 3.5" square color glossy Kodacolor prints, processed in May 1965 as stamped on the back of each. These scenes are all on the beaches and one or more of the Beatles can be easily seen in 11 of the 14 images. One has Ringo in the light-colored suit with red paint splashed on him and another shows Paul walking along the beach with a cigarette in his hand. Several are taken of and in preparation for the scene where he hangs on top of the speeding car. Please see our website for all the images. Generally Very Good condition with expected wear, one showing the idol on a ship in the harbor has a corner missing. A set of negatives made from these prints are included.
