I love these because they're all so different (except for the fact that they're all owned by my dad).

The first is a promotional poster for the 1965 Beatles movie, "Help." As you can see, it's totally enormous---almost the full height of the room, and probably six feet or so wide. I think it is actually many smaller pieces mounted together on the larger board, rather than one whole sheet of paper.

The second photo (excuse the glare) is a more modestly sized poster for the Beatles' first movie, "A Hard Day's Night" (1964). So '60s!

The last is a little less obvious. In the early years, the Beatles always performed with a Vox amplifier, and they had some kind of unofficial promotional deal with the company. This poster is actually an ad for Vox touting all the up-and-coming bands who were using their gear: "Vox is the sound--the sound at the top: Like The Beatles, Paul Revere and the Raiders, The Rolling Stones, The Animals, The Kinks, Peter and Gordon," and so on. I love the slogan at the end: "Vox is what's happening! Let it happen to you."
