Lot 745: Vintage glossy 6.5 x 4.75 photo of the Beatles while filming their 1965 film Help!, signed and inscribed in blue ballpoint, "John Lennon," "Paul McCartney," "George Harrison," and "To Diane, love from the Beatles, Ringo Starr." In very good condition, with heavy overall creasing affecting most signatures and some light contrast to portions of the Lennon and Starr signatures against the busy background. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from the original recipient, in full: "I worked as assistant cameraman in the making of the 1965 film 'Help'; I can confirm that I had this photograph signed for my cousin Diane by all four members of the Beatles while filming at Twickenham Film Studios." An image somewhat similar to this one appears on the back of the Help! soundtrack album. Fully signed items from the latter half of the 1960s are scarce, with this example enhanced by its provenance connecting it to their second feature film.
