The Beatles Help!

Speaking of Film Soundtracks . . .

We were just discussing these last week, and I happened to notice that EMI is re-releasing the 1965 movie, The Beatles Help! in a special-beautiful-super-deluxe 2 DVD set (and  advertising the hell out of it everywhere I look).

I guess when Help! the Deluxe Edition sells for $95, they can afford the advertising budget. Its a huge promotional push to nostalgic boomers.

I have a hard time justifying the $95 dollar price for this one -- but not for the $54.99 5 DVD Blade Runner (previously discussed here, here, here and here).

Especially since a digitally restored and newly created 5.1 soundtrack 2 DVD version of Help! is available for $17 !

UPDATE: November 9, 2007 5:43am

I see the 5 DVD deluxe Blade Runner has an Amazon.com Sales Rank of # 107, versus Help! the Deluxe Edition, which is has #112 in DVD sellers; 

The 2 DVD version of Help! version of help is #17.

Ha! Score one for rational behavior . . .

$95? A sign of the times, I think.
