Inspired by a bunch of off-topic posts on the White Album thread, thought we might talk about it here. As many probably know, A Hard Day's Night was made in glorious black and white so they could make it on the cheap. Plenty of color film stock existed, that was not the problem. It was just a lot more expensive to do and the film studios thought sure The Beatles were a flash in the pan and wanted to capitalize on them quickly, before their sudden fame dried up. Hard to believe now, but that's how they thought about them back then. The only "concept" about AHDN in B/W was to save money. Many don't think it's possible to do the film justice with colorization, or just think it's sacrilege. Is that really true? I tend to think it could be done well today, and not hurt anything about the original. After all, the original would still exist. You wouldn't lose anything, only gain a new version. Somewhat the same as with the new Pepper and White Album remixes. And perhaps the biggest thing, I think there are a lot of younger fans who would warm to seeing this great movie in color, but won't touch it in black and white. It just looks very old, like something from another time (guess it is) and Millennials and others simply have no interest in that. Thing is, the movie is really clever and funny, so if it was colorized and looked pretty good, then I think there would be a sizable audience for it all around. Thoughts?
