This portraitback to top

This photograph is one of nearly 300 images that Peto took during the making of the Beatles' second feature film Help! (1965). The band are shown with director Richard Lester during a break in the filming of the 'Buckingham Palace' scene, which used Cliveden House and especially built sets at Twickenham Studios as locations. In 2006 Peto's photographs of the group were collected in a limited edition book Now These Days Are Gone.
