1. Good lord thats a bit steep.
I guess for the beatles fan who has everything a real lazy mans gift. I would be more curious to see a similar box set for Pink Floyd's the wall or the Monkee's Head honestly.

If you have a Beatles fan on the old holiday shopping list get them the 5 disc Beatles Anthology which is quite good and about half the price.

2. Maybe for $30, and even then other movies given this treatment aren't nearly as pricey.
Especially when it's a folded reprint of a poster, amongst other cheap things.

It's all a bit naff, except for the quality of the restored picture image.

3. Maybe they'll sell as many copies as possible of the "special edition"...
...and then give the rest of us a break with the $15 "regular" edition.

That's what usually happens.

I'd be thrilled to pay $15-$20 for a nice remastered DVD copy of "Help"...

anything more expensive means I'll continue watching my VHS copy from Cinemax.
