Help! Movie Inspiration

Help! Movie Inspiration

It was 42 years ago that the Beatles played the Hollywood Bowl and that got us to thinking. The Beatles style provided such inspiration to their generation--and everyone that followed. As avid fans of both the era's style and the Beatles, we couldn't help but think of their movie, Help! and the set decor as a great example of fun mod style.

A time when surrealism influenced spare pop art colors and the whole thing was infused with a bit of humor.

In re-watching the movie, we were surprised by how current this style looks today. Obviously we're in a huge mod revival, but still, most of the scenes don't look dated and how much would we kill to have John Lennon's sunken bed and revolving bookcase, or Ringo's in-house vending machine in that amazing blue, or a white grand piano rising out of the floor...

We could go on, but we know you understand.
