"Yellow Submarine" (feature) by The Beatles – ****

First released: 1968

For years, this was the usual way that kids were introduced to Beatles music, and then they stopped playing the film on television. For a long time, you couldn’t even view the film, then finally in the 80s it was issued on tape, and later on on DVD. Now it is commonly available and is essential viewing for any Beatles or animation fan. There’s even a small cameo by the fabs at the end.

They always act like this was a flop and maybe it was in England, but it wasn’t in America. It was a big hit here!
