THE BEATLES IN OBERTAUERN
It was on March 13, 1965, when John Lennon, Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney and George Harrison came to Obertauern for the filming of “HELP”.
The filming in Obertauern proved to be largely chaotic. There was no exact script for many scenes, improvisation art was the order of the day. Since the Beatles – with the exception of Lennon – had never been on skis before, there were many unforeseen events and therefore the shooting was never boring.
On March 21, 1965, the last Austria flap fell in Obertauern for “HELP! – the same evening the legendary Beatles and their 66-strong film crew left the winter sports resort Obertauern.
