I watched MMT recently, apart from the songs it's not all that good. I do like Help despite the silly plot but AHDN and YS are the best two. I really need to get YS on BluRay.

I once saw a tribute album of covers of this - yes, that's right, a tribute album covering this film.  Billy Preston's good in the film though

Yellow Submarine. I received it from my uncle (who was a priest) for my birthday when I was 5. I am by no means getting rid of it even though I am lacking in both a television and a VHS system. Smile

I never saw Sgt Peppers LHCB and from what i hear it is a strategic move to avoid at allcosts.

Yet I am intrigued it must have had some merits - at least one decent scene surely.... though I have no idea what to expect.

Best bits of Beatles movies:

Hard Days Night - title scene, And I Love Her, outdoors jumping scene,the press interviews "I'm a mocker", all the songs really

Help! snow scene... thats about it really

Magical Mystery Tour- Spaghetti, Harrison's trip, title scenes, Walrus, All ya need is Love, Foool on the hill, Ringos ma

Yellow Sub - All together Now, title scenes, blue meanies, most songs, esp the psychedelic trippy scenes

Let It Be - all the songs are great - but cant remember the scenes in this one

The Beatles did that instead of playing live in an empty venue - an idea copied by Pink Floyd a couple of years later.

I like Yellow Submarine. I would buy that on DVD but wouldn't buy any of the others. I watched Magical Mystery Tour over Christmas after watching the BBC documentary of its making. Quite interesting. The furore it caused when it first aired in a prime time slot on Boxing Day (1967?) was quite amusing to reflect on. Most of the nation was not braced for an experimental art house film!
