DescriptionHelp! (United Artists, 1965). Fine on Linen. Door Panel Set of 4 (20" X 60" each).
Among of the most incredibly rare of Beatles promotional items, theaters used these door panels to advertise the band's second feature film. Worth noting, Help! is the only picture of the Fab Four's where door panels were among the promotional posters. As so few theaters possessed a place to display them, theater owners rarely ordered these sets, and even if they did, the posters were somewhat expensive to purchase. At that time, all four cost a whopping $7.50, whereas a one sheet cost 15¢! Theater owners broke up and gave away many of the panels ordered in the film's initial showing to fans at the end of its run, one at a time. Single panels do infrequently appear, however this is a great opportunity to grab the full set all at once! This lovely and vibrant set has been professional conserved to address general wear such as pinholes, tears into the interior, small surface scuffs, and chipping at the borders with some paper loss into the background. The borders and yellow backgrounds have been airbrushed with some cracking in the restoration. Still visible are some light post-restoration surface scuffs, minor stains, and faint smudges.
Estimate: $10,000 - $20,000.
