These are on youtube; And I Love Her and Tell Me Why from the film 'A Hard Day's Night' (both running too slow) have to some extent been colourised

NO, GOD PLEASE GOD NO!!!!paul-mccartneypaul-mccartneypaul-mccartney they all look like they're caked in foundation especially in the "Tell Me Why" video,.

I'm not to fond of watching The Beatles in colour especially their early years, it's too weird even the '63 concert in Manchester is hard to watch even if it was originally filmed in colour! But colourising A Hard Day's Night, the end of the world is upon us a-hard-days-night-ringo-2

It's so weird seeing it colourised, and it doesn't feel right. AHDN wasn't filmed in colour, so why change it??

Simple answer is: money. It's the same with Laurel and Hardy films being colourised, although it completely wrecks the footage and the feel of the movie

OMG, I would hate seeing it like that. I can understand something like the video for All You Need Is Love (flowers, colorful outfits, summer of love etc.), but in this case it makes no sense.

Ive seen some of the colourised Laurel and Hardy and so much is lost thru the process, the humour works in b&w and there is something timeless in each one which is lost when colour is added. For me its the same with A Hard Days Night; there is a timelessness in the black and white and it fits perferctly for that time. All You Need Is Love benefits from the colour due to the psychedelic times, there was something transcending in Anthology when it started out in b&w and then blossomed and came alive. For me AYNIS looked wrong in b&w.

I'd still love to see AHDN in colour though, IF it's done right. Just curious.

Yikes!a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

I was never a fan of colorized B&W movies. These 2 videos do nothing to change that.

In the one for 'Tell Me Why', John's close up at about :30 seconds in makes him look 20 years older than he really is.a-hard-days-night-john-5

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

I notice some of the footage in the Tell Me Why video wasn't from A Hard Day's Night. Some of the footage was from the Manchester concert footage from 1963 and Shea Stadium 1965.
