The Beatles’ second film is not the masterpiece of their first, “A Hard Day’s Night,” but it is colorful, funny, and exciting.  And it also has a fabulous soundtrack including the title song and “You’re Going To Lose That Girl,” “You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away,” “Ticket To Ride,” “I Need You,” “The Night Before,” and “Another Girl.”

It’s a spy spoof about a Beatles fan who sends a ruby ring that is used in a religious ritual to Ringo.  The ring is used in a ritual sacrifice.  Since it is stuck on Ringo’s finger, the cult members decide he must be sacrificed.  So, there is a lot of silly racing around and a scene where Paul gets shrunk.  And a lot of great music.
