There are no bloopers, all footage apart from what the BBC shot for a documentary in 1964 (all silent and out there already) and a couple of other things (the You Cant Do That promo) were destroyed years ago - i think Walter Shenson went looking in 1982 and found there was nothing in the vaults. The documentary would be filled with nothing new except a fascinating unscene interview from one of the hairdressers that was filmed for the last reissue and other titbits that might interest some but not many. Dont go thinking that it would be something like last years MMT dvd.

Sorry for the negativity but i am fed up with Apple, its half-arsed handling of the Beatles, and its philosophy of you give us £10 and we'll give you a pounds worth of material in return.

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...

True. But knowing Apple they'd either mess it up upon release, take forever getting it out there, or charge a fortune for the privilege to here it. A lot of independent factors came together for the Anthology project to get sanctioned from all 4, i think the same would have to happen for anything substantial being issued over the next few years. I doubt anything had been discovered by the last DVD release in whatever year the dvd came out otherwise im sure we would have seen it.

Who knows! Apple do occassionally get motivated and release impressive things (its just a shame it takes them an aeon to get there) and if that can happen then surely miracles do exist.

Hmm? What did ''last years MMT dvd'' have? I really don't pay attention to those things.

^^ 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.

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!"

Hang on. I saw the Birds years ago and then recently and I thought it looked different but familiar and wasn't as scary. Was that because it has since been colourised? I thought it was because I was older and it was on tv (originally saw it at a local theatre that was screening a number of classic old films).

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.

I have never heard of this before! But yeah, look around the net & you'll find more than a few folks who remember seeing "The Birds" in B&W, for some reason. All of them seem to mention the image of black birds against a white sky. Inexplicable...

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.

meanmrmustard said: What bothers me more than anything is that at times John looks like an oompa-looma caked in orange. And of course the colour adds absolutely nothing to the film. Here's hoping Apple dont think it looks good and give us it for the 50th - tho surely they would get the colours right.

I said the exact same thing while watching and was about to post that when I saw this ^ 

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

I'm sure it could be done well if they got the right people. Hell there is a girl I follow on tumblr that does amazing colour edits.  She has even done gifs from A Hard Days Night.

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.
