"We spent quite a lot of time on post-production," Lester says on achieving the vibrant color of Help! "We took two frames of every shot in the film, put them up on a light box, and played around with color filters until chose which filter we were putting in . . . we did it for every shot in the film."

The digitally restored Blu-ray version of Help! is available Tuesday on Amazon and the Beatles' catalog is available on iTunes.
