I used the post of someone pining for the release of "Let it Be," the movie, on the Beatles Christmas release thread to offer the opinion that I didn't think it would ever see the light of day. Full disclosure, I own an official release of said movie that I no longer can play (it was on one of those RCA video discs that were like records that came out in the early '80s) and a Mirror Spock boot on DVD sourced from the Japanese laser disc. I said I figured Macca would never want that out, because it revisits the acrimony. I figured Olivia wouldn't want it out because George throughout the whole thing was so sour and grumpy he appeared to have been sucking persimmons. I figured Yoko might want it out since she's in it so much, even though her husband is obviously stoned to the gills on heroin and was giving off "I don't give a caca" vibes in every scene until they got to the rooftop. I figured Ritchie really could care less. I was told that all of those people save the Widow Lennon have no problem with it coming out. I offered my .02 ... worth about that much ... that aside from the rooftop (and I'll backtrack and add the three music videos, although John's incompetent bass playing kind of messes up "Long and Winding Road" and the title tune), root canal is preferable to watching that depressing record of a disintegrating band whose members really have no use for each other anymore, screwing around and jamming off-key in the studio, while one acts like a schoolmarm trying to reanimate the dead and stave off the inevitable. I offered my .02 that people who've never seen this movie and bought it would store it away after one viewing, never to be revisited except maybe to fast forward to the rooftop. I was told "music fans will still want to buy it." So, help me out here. 1. Why specifically do you want this movie out? (Full disclosure: I absolutely, 100 percent, without question believe it should be released.) 2. I've Googled extensively, and the only direct quote I can find from any Beatle on re-releasing this movie is Ritchie three years ago in Rolling Stone, saying "Yeah it looks like it might come out." I did find a quote in an interview with Tony Richmond, the cinematographer who filmed the movie, in the February issue of American Cinematheque magazine this year, where he said it will never come out, that Yoko and Olivia have vetoed it because they don't want the acrimony revisited. (Someone in the other thread was teeth-gnashing about Yoko still having a voice in this; I will point out that even though I have zero use for her, she as John's widow has every right, just like the spouses of every one of us non-Beatle schmucks posting here should we croak, to control and administer his affairs/estate.) Those who said the others have no issue with it, could you provide documentation of that? I'm not calling anyone untruthful or saying it doesn't exist, I'd just like to see verification for my own knowledge. The thing is, I figure the guy who shot the thing for Lindsay-Hogg ought to know what's really going on with this.
