John did enjoy filming it despite his comments in some interviews. He supposedly raved about it in a 1980 interview and you can tell in parts of the film.

Its not like Apple to ignore a big promotional push and what better than when everyone is saying "Today John Lennon was born in 1940 and would be 72", now they can throw in "and today Magical Mystery Tour is being released for the first time in who knows how long..."

[Posted this elsewhere on the forum but its more at home here]

 

Have just realised that the MMT DVD is being reissued pretty much 50 years to the day Love Me Do was released in the UK (5th October). All the talk of it being the same day as Johns 72nd birthday meant it never occured to me. I doubt its coincidence.]

There were screenings of MMT in the US so maybe the idea comes from there (but they might have been in the 70's).

 

Warning! Rant Ahead

It will also make Apple money, lots of money, from the fans who rush out and see it.  Both Apples are excellent at fleecing fans. I recently read an article about Apple (the ipod one) which said that at one time Apple were at the forefront of exciting, new leaps into undiscovered regions of technology and its advancement and its subsequent effect in and upon society but now its more about money and the updates are getting less monumental with every passing launch event. Thought that that nicely fitted into the other Apple who are more than willing to give us toe nail clipper sharpers and marshmallow protective covers whilst we know fine well whats sitting gathering dust and developing rigor mortis (as am I). Give us something to faint over for f~*^ sake. I dont want Beatle scrabble, it doesnt make me giddy with delight. MMT is good and we are getting some unreleased stuff but come on. Waken up and stop ripping us off.

 

I would normally go without a minutes hesitation but £10 for a so-so 50 minute film + bonus's. Plus there is travel and food costs so past £20. I can get the deluxe boxset for £30 on amazon.co.uk.  I cant justify it but its The Beatles on the big screen. Yellow Submarine and A Hard Days Night were really good movies as was the George Harrison documentary but MMT is not.

Time to do some serious jumping up and down like youre 4 years old and just seen all the presents under the tree with your name on.

 

The Space have issued previously unseen footage of the Fish and Chip shop visit during filming the tv movie - and it looks wonderful. So cool to see 4 Beatles (and Mal) in such an informal setting.

 

If this is where Apple are going with releases than i'll wind down some of my bitterness towards them and their handling of the archives.

 

[What is about beatles and unseen fish and chips?]
