Joking! But can't you just picture Joey Lawrence saying, "I'm a mocker. Whoa!". Thank God Hollywood hasn't dared to remake this one.

Hehe. I was trying to think of the most cringe-worthy remake possible, short of adding Captain Planet or Urkel to the mix. That's just cruel. I wouldn't put it passed Hollywood. They did remake The Pink Panther. Twice. Yell

They're giving it a try with the Yellow Submarine remake. Based on little information out there, I've decided to keep my torches and pitchforks in the shed - for now.

Trying to remake Yellow Submarine? If they do, the movie will be just as worse as Across The Universe. Once again, you cannot remake a Beatles movie.

Hmm. Was this ever on topic?

Here's a question: would it have worked in color? I came across this picture and it got me wondering.

Image Enlarger

I think I prefer it it black and white (as if we had the option of color) since it contrasts nicely with the films that followed.

I think it would have worked IF it had never been black & white. Cliff Richard's movies (filmed befroe AHDN) were in colour and they worked fine.

It was more of a budget than an artistic issue with this movie. Which is funny because it seems more artsy in b&w now.  I think the Can't Buy Me Love field scene would have been nice in color.

I prefer it in black n' white. Don't ask why, but I love black n' white better than color!a-hard-days-night-paul-2

But I do agree that the Can't Buy Me Love scene would look fab in color!a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

Which one? There were two "Can't Buy Me Love" scenes… the field and the police chase. a-hard-days-night-george-4

I'm sure you mean the "Sorry we hurt your field, Mister!" scene… and I agree, it would look cool in color. I also love the black and white feel of the film… really makes it feel like it came from another era.

Speaking of the police chase, I love when they make it into the police station just to catch their breath… when the sergeant asks John, "You all right?" and he nods and they just take off again. Hehehe.. adorable!

Ah! Adorable. a-hard-days-night-john-1 I rewind that part too many times in one showing... aiyee!

On the whole colour front, I think it would make the film more present and maybe give it a better or more broad audience today as I know too many people have a thing against black and white films... over my head, I don't know why.

Though, I myself love the black n' white. Hello, early 60s! That's what it's all about.

I think I might have to watch it again (how terrible), because I listened to my regular copy and my soundtrack version of If I Fell, and I didn't hear much of difference. (Smooth. a-hard-days-night-george-4)

Edit: OK, did a little youtube research.  Not surprising, you're right!

Here's the BBC version:

The 'other' version:

Still have no idea why, but at least I could confirm your findings. (Right?)
