I read the news today, oh boy. Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr have stopped the release of the Beatles film 'Let It Be'.

The 1970 documentary reveals tensions between the Fab Four - Paul, Ringo and the late John Lennon and George Harrison - shortly before their break-up, and insiders at the band's record company, Apple, claim the two surviving members do not want it re-released.

(Sorry...the "Let it Be" film has been removed) For educational purposes only, we present the film in it's entirety. As unrepentant Beatles fans who bought every album and movie, and happily forked out dough for the "Love" show in Las Vegas, we think you should see this--with all due respect to Paul and Ringo, it's part of the story. They should release the film.

THanks for posting a movie I was too young to ever get a chance to see theatrically. Now I wonder WHY Paul and Ringo made that decision. Do they want to sweep the grumpy side of the Beatles under the rug?

In a way, it's understandable, like not wanting pictures of you with the flu getting circulated. On the other hand, it's part of the history of the group and contains some excellent segments, especially the rooftop concert at the end of the film.

Maybe Sir Paul and Ringo want to remember only the good times, the incense and peppermints side of things, but I wonder if Mr. Harrison and Mr. Lennon were alive today if they would have voted the same.

As they said in Yellow Submarine, "Nothing is Beatleproof!"
