BEATLES: LET IT BE 16MM UNCROPPED FILM PRINT IN STEREO BLU-RAY
THE BEATLES: LET IT BE 16MM UNCROPPED FILM PRINT IN STEREO BLU-RAY For the Beatles completist and serious fans, the biggest frustration has been in not finding the "Beatles - Let It Be" in a complete, uncropped, great quality version. The reason for this is quite interesting. The original film was shot in 16mm (standard TV 4x3 format). However, when the film was released, they cropped the 16mm print by chopping off parts of the top and bottom and blew it up to 35mm widescreen. I myself wondered in the 70's why the picture quality was so mediocre right in the movie theatre! Now we all know why. So even in the theatre, one did NOT get to see the full picture that was filmed. Then to add insult to injury, when Let It Be was released in the 1980's on Beta and VHS videotape and on Laserdisc (all in standard TV 4x3 format), the manufacturers did NOT go back to the original 16mm film that was shot in the same format. INSTEAD, they sourced it from the 35mm widescreen theatre print and CHOPPED it AGAIN, this time from the sides. So anyone purchasing previous Beta, VHS and Laserdisc versions of Let It Be, now got to see even LESS since it had now been chopped on all 4 sides. The WIDESCREEN STEREO VERSION rectified a lot of the problems. For anyone that saw the film in the theatres in the 70's, it is great now to be able to see the original theatrical release, in stereo AND in much improved quality, including clearer picture and more natural colours. However, as enjoyable as this version is (which would satisfy most collectors), it still is missing the top and bottom portions from the originally shot 16mm film version. Now for the first time ever, we have available the original uncropped 4x3 version taken from a rare German 16mm film print. This not only has ALL of the original picture filmed, but is also in much better quality and in stereo. Of course, it is in 4x3 which is the old non-widescreen TV format. Some collectors will prefer the widescreen version that they are familiar with from the movie theatre. Some will prefer the originally shot 4x3 film as it was originally intended. THE FULL UNCROPPED VERSION in STEREO! UPSCALED AND COLOR CORRECTED FOR THE BEST QULAITY! Complete fim: Twickenham, Apple Studios to the finale on the roof top! With film trailers. Approx 85 minutes 31 chapters.
