A recently-found 8mm film of The Beatles is going up for auction

The Beatles broke up 54 years ago after a very hot seven-year run. People cannot get enough of them so auction houses are only too happy to feed this immortal demand.

Remarkable Rarities is in charge of selling an ultra-rare artifact: A silent 8mm film of all four Beatles behind the scenes on the set of the movie Help! What we actually see is the group working through the “I Need You ” sequence. It’s been in the possession of one of the production crew.

Here’s a short preview. You can bid here. You’ll probably need at least US$10,000.
