    If colorization is done carefully and correctly it will definitely be an added visual bonus to seeing the cleaned up footage. Many of the B&W films are still out there and available for purists.

    Wow that Washington snippet looks good

    Still no rare and "unseen" footage that I can tell. That's what I'm waiting for.

    With all the hype about this, it's looking more and more like a reiteration of Anthology episodes 2 through 5. And I really hope I'm wrong about that.

    I think the colorized fotage looks pretty bad. I could have done something better but no one asked me.

    To me this looks quite rare and unseen

    Why would they chop up the standard 4×3 footage and try to make it fit a scope image (2.35×1). It would be hard enough to try to fit to the HDTV (1.85×1) image. I can only hope that they did it carefully. Colorization is fine. I may have a problem with butchering the image. I'll hope for the best.

    I think colorization is absolutely the way to go, the film will come of as being more consistent and perhaps visually appealing. The Beatles music is timeless, but the haircuts of 1964, and trouser cuts, and the stage decorations are noticeably out of date – which for some younger audiences may be a real distraction. Considering that it is not convenient to digitally change the clothing of every audience member, colorizing the footage is one way of making the visuals more ageless – to match the music.

    Does anybody have a clue as to what is going to happen to the Shea film? Will it come out to buy? I wondered whether there were copyright issues preventing it being part of the new film, but it's a Subafilms project iirc? Obviously it'll make a nice little package – maybe with the original audio and the dubbed sound the boys recorded in 1966 as an audio extra??

    What do other fellow fabular people think?
