    Beatles Color 35MM Photographs And Negatives From The Bahamas Filming of HELP!, Sold With Copyright. The consignor of these photographs was fortunate enough to be on a family vacation in the Bahamas in early March 1965 while the Beatles were on location filming HELP! She and her sister (both American teenagers) were of course HUGE Beatles fans and they made their way to the Paradise Island filming location over the course of several days, where they were welcomed by and had numerous conversations with the Beatles, and allowed unencumbered access. Here is a very candid collection of original color photographs which are being sold with the original 35MM negatives and full copyright transfer to the purchaser. Most of the photos show filming on the beach, with John, Paul, George and Ringo in numerous shots, but also Mal Evans, director Richard Lester, co-star Eleanor Bron, and many of the supporting cast and crew members. There are even photographs of the photographer Henry Grossman - who shot the HELP! album's back cover photograph - taking pictures of John. Shots were also taken around the white sports car which Paul used during filming (see following lot), and other locations in the Bahamas. The vintage photographs number 38 in total, 24 of which include one or more Beatle. There are apparently 47 different images in the negative strips, although we are unsure of whether Beatles appear in the additional images captured in negative. The vintage photos measure 3" x 5" and are in overall Very Good condition, a few with slight damages and staining. "MAR 65" is stamped on the versos indicating the date of film developing. The negatives are in strips of 4 or fewer images. Comes with an LOP from the consignor detailing her time spent with the Beatles in the Bahamas.
