The simple suit jacket that Beatles drummer Ringo Starr wore in the Fab Four's hit film Help! has gone on sale for a staggering £35,000 50 years after its release.<br />
<br />
Ringo donned the double-breasted black wool jacket in a pivotal scene in the 1965 movie, a comedy adventure following the Beatles as they battled an evil occult.<br />
<br />
The jacket, made by Beatles tailors D.A. Millings & Sons, was gifted by Ringo's parents Elsie and Harry to family friends in the late 1960s after they visited them at their home in Liverpool.<br />
<br />
The jacket is now tipped to fetch a massive $50,000 - around £35,000 - when it goes under the hammer at RR Auction in Boston, US, on July 23.
