In the mid-1960s, John, Paul, George, and Ringo packed their parkas and headed for snowier climbs: the Austrian Alps. The Beatles — and a film crew of about 60 — decamped to the small village of Obertauern to shoot scenes for the band's second feature film, "Help!", a madcap comedy that found them facing off against an evil cult.
In these rarely seen, silent home videos filmed by actor Leo McKern, the Fab Four are captured on set curling, snapping shots, and goofing around. (George Harrison's girlfriend Patti Boyd and John Lennon's wife Cynthia also make a cameo.)
