Not wanting to sound too positive, and not really expecting much, but you never know what may have been discovered, despite being missed in previous hunts. At the time Lewisohn wrote The Complete Beatles Recording Session, he said with authority, that the only survivor from the 6 June 1962 session was Besame Mucho, "on a private reel discovered in the early 1980s". Yet, between then and AnthologyLove Me Do was found. I'm just saying, you never know...

^^ A short version of the "making of" documentary shown in the UK and on PBS in the US, Paul's director commentary, alternate takes of "The Fool On The Hill" (with Paul looking adorable), "Blue Jay Way," "Your Mother Should Know," a BBC promo video for "Hello Goodbye," of the guys editing starring Paul's hat, a short feature on Ringo the actor, historical footage on secondary characters that I personally found fascinating, some Easter Eggs with bonuses such as a scene John directed and the fish and chips shop footage that you see in the bubbles at the end of the "I Am The Walrus" video. A couple of other things I'm blanking on.

If you take a look at the MMT thread, you'll see me drooling because I just had a chance to view it all after waiting for my turn in the library queue. I was incredibly impressed with the extras, which might be a sad commentary on what Apple tends to offer. Seriously, I was amazed they included that much in the DVD without making you pay triple digits.

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

Someone is going colorize "A Hard Day's Night?"!!! Say it isn't so!!! I just saw Alfed Hitchcock's "THe Birds", colorized....it made a once scary movie look stupid. Why would someone ruin that movie...if you want color, watch "Help!"

When I first saw "The Birds" it was in black and white (it came out in 1963...not saying that's when I saw it). I just saw it again and it was in color! It really looked fake in color. To keep this on a Beatles theme, I did find myself singing "
Blackbird" during the movie!

To quote one of the many references to this on the net: "There has been this misconception about “The Birds” that it was filmed in black and white when it was actually filmed in color."

Sorry folks - you will have to pick another example of poor colorisation :)

What you probably saw was a poor colour print, some of the 50s and 60s films have faded very badly, like old colour photos.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Did a google search and found an Examiner article with an interview with Tippi Hedren, the female star of The Birds. In regards to how the film was shot she says

There has been this misconception about “The Birds” that it was filmed in black and white when it was actually filmed in color. A lot of that had to do with people first watching it on their black and white television sets at home, and it understandably made the experience of watching a bit different for them. Hedren reflected on what people have told her regarding this issue.

“I’ve had people say ‘oh I am so delighted that they colorized The Birds,’ and I said ‘uh no, we filmed it in color.’ And they said ‘no, no, no, I saw it in black and white.’ Soon the argument kept growing, and I finally said ‘no, you saw it on a black-and-white TV!’ And they went, ‘yes.’ Case closed!” said Hedren jokingly.

I do wonder then why the theatre showed it in black and white.

Question is would somebody 21st century and 'new' to the Beatles find a colourised AHDN more accessible and more natural? I think they would.

If you can call looking caked "natural".

Looks good (if being honest) and far better than those monstrosities on youtube. Still dont see the point in it all tho.
