    That is awesome! I have "A Hard Day's Night" on Blu-ray, I plan on getting "Yellow Submarine" soon (I can't believe I don't have it yet) and I'll get this as soon as possible. The Beatles are musical geniuses, but their genius translated to film as well. Their films are never anything short of a silly great time, and I can't wait to add this one to my collection.

    Yeah I had the official Apple release of MMT on VHS way back in the late '80s/early '90s that looked really nice, but my DVD copy is from a terrible print.

    I'm curious to know how that Yellow Sub DVD is. I have the version that came out a while back that spawned the Songtrack version of the album and it looks and sounds great, so I dunno if I want to plunk down for another version that might not be too different.

    If you have a Blu-ray player, I definitely recommend a Blu-ray copy of Yellow Submarine. I hear it looks and sounds absolutely astounding.

    Per the Wikipedia article on the film:

    The movie was remastered from the original 16 mm film negative by Apple in 1992, with a few of those scenes used in The Beatles Anthology documentary. After additional remastering, a DVD release was planned to accompany the 2003 release of Let It Be... Naked, including a second DVD of bonus material,[17] but it never materialised. In February 2007, Apple Corps' Neil Aspinall said, "The film was so controversial when it first came out. When we got halfway through restoring it, we looked at the outtakes and realised: this stuff is still controversial. It raised a lot of old issues."[41]

    An anonymous industry source told the Daily Express in July 2008 that, according to Apple insiders, McCartney and Starr blocked the release of the film on DVD. The two were concerned about the effect on the band's "global brand ... if the public sees the darker side of the story. Neither Paul nor Ringo would feel comfortable publicising a film showing The Beatles getting on each other's nerves ... There's all sorts of extra footage showing more squabbles but it's unlikely it will ever see the light of day in Paul and Ringo's lifetime."[42]


    Well, the rest of us will be living longer than Paul and Ringo, so maybe we'll see it someday. I'm not sure why they're uptight about it. It's not like everyone doesn't know that part of their story.

    Ah, and as far as Let It Be goes, I saw the old VHS version when I was in high school. It's a pretty dull movie all around, but as a fan I would buy it if it was ever officially released on DVD.

    This. Why hide something that is public knowledge? But like you said, I'll probably outlive Paul and Ringo by a good fifty years, so I'm sure I'll see it eventually.
