New Spy DVDs
Help Is Here!
The Beatles' own Sixties spy spoof is finally available on DVD today! Help! stars the Fab Four along with The Prisoner's Leo McKern and features a groovy spy score by producer George Martin, channelling John Barry and prefiguring his own 1973 Bond score for Live and Let Die. The 2-disc set features some nifty packaging and lots of cool extras, including a documentary, a deleted scene, radio spots, featurettes and more. Snap this one up quick because Beatles DVDs have a nasty habit of going out of print.
Best Buy's early, early Christmas deals include a great price on A&E's recently issued Dangermouse: The Complete Series. Fans of classic spy animation can pick up all ten seasons' worth of adventures of "the world's smallest secret agent" for just $65.
