I really don't understand why Let It Be is constantly being regarded as a depressing documentation of the breakup of The Beatles.  When I saw it in the movies fifty years ago I thought it was joyous.  I remember coming home feeling great!  So lately I'm thinking that maybe I misremembered.  Until yesterday when I saw a link to a fan's restoration of it on expectingrain.com

I remembered it correctly!  It was great.  There was that one scene where George seems irked at Paul.  So what!  That kind of thing probably happened during the recording of every Beatles album!  I'm looking forward to the new Peter Jackson thing, but the original doesn't need any correcting.

Very similar to my own experience, intagliogutenberg.

And in the end

The only correction i'd do to the original is actually adding more footage of the Beatles working on the music. I do not care at all about John and Yoko dancing, Paul explaining how the cameras should move, how George introduced Bill Preston to the others, etc...i'd love to watch them making and talking music. I want to know how and why they did the arrangements they did.

Ya, the first half of the movie is the depressing part.   Hope you got to see the Rooftop performances.

I used to have, on my computer, a copy of the audio that I pulled from the movie.  It's not a bad listen, although the quality was terrible.  I don't have it anymore, but I'll probably do the same thing with the audio from the remaster, as well as the new movie
