YELLOW SUBMARINE on video
Created 07/09/1999 - 23:00
Long-withheld due to a legal snag, this fall MGM Home Entertainment will be
reissuing YELLOW SUBMARINE. This release will restore YELLOW SUBMARINE to
its original English release length, which is said to be three and a half
minutes longer than the US release, restoring the "Hey Bulldog" sequence
that was cut for reasons of length for the original Amercian theatrical
release. MGM/UA's new transfer is said to be bright and colorful, without a
trace of the film dirt and scratches that mar the earlier video release.
Also, the Beatles songs have been re-mixed from the original masters, and a
new film soundtrack mix has been done in Dolby Digital 5.1. The film is
being released on VHS, laser disc, and DVD, but apparently only the DVD
will include extras. One of these extras is a contemporary making-of
documentary, THE BEATLES MOD ODYSSEY. The US release date for all formats
is September 14, 1999.
