LET IT BE THE RESTORED 1970 FILM BY MICHAEL LINDSAY-HOGG NOW on DVD

Restoration Background: The film’s last release was on VHS back in the 1980s, and it’s fair to say that the new version delivers better picture and sound quality than that version: Jackson worked with his Park Road Post Production team as well as the film’s director, Michael Lindsay-Hogg, to ensure that the restoration was true to the film’s original vision.  This  long-lost Beatles artifact, which inspired Jackson to dig deeper with his Emmy-winning “The Beatles: Get Back” docuseries, captures director Michael Lindsay-Hogg’s fly-on-the-wall snapshot of the Fab Four’s creatively productive yet tense studio sessions for their final two albums — “Let It Be” and “Abbey Road” — followed by their joyous rooftop concert at Apple Corps headquarters.

Lindsay-Hogg: “Peter’s a Beatles fan par excellence and, through his investigation [for ‘Get Back’], he ended up with this wonderful giant’s mood of a movie because he had the time to do it,” “And also because he was a great tinkerer as well, he was able to come up with visual things and audio things that I very much benefited from in ‘Let It Be.’ And I owe him. He’s always put himself out as a friend to me and to ‘Let It Be,’ and he’s never backed off that. He also understands exactly what I, as a director, had felt for the long number of years when ‘Let It Be’ could not be seen.”

After Jackson finished “Get Back,” he immediately advocated for the return of “Let It Be,” which demanded to be seen again in light of the revelations he uncovered in Lindsay-Hogg’s outtakes. Jackson meticulously restored the documentary from the 16mm negative and remastered the sound using the same MAL de-mix tech from the docuseries (music supervisor Giles Martin remixed the music using the same machine learning software that separates the tracks).

Description: Available for the first time in 50 years, “Let It be” is Director Michael Lindsay–Hogg’s original 1970 film about the Beatles. First released in May 1970 amidst the swirl of the Beatles break up, “Let It Be” now takes its rightful place in the band history. Once viewed through a darker lens, the film is now brought to light through its restoration and the context of revelations brought forth in Peter Jackson’s multiple Emmy award winning docuseries, “The Beatles: Get Back.” Released in 2021 the docuseries showcases the iconic foursome’s warmth and camaraderie, capturing a pivotal moment in music history

This restored film begins with a NEW interview between Peter Jackson discussing the restoration with the director of “Let It Be” Michael Lindsay-Hogg’ entited: “Get Back to Let It Be”. For a start, it’s a lot shorter than Get Back: 80 minutes compared to eight hours. But there’s a lot packed into that short running time. The band were at each other’s throats and would break up shortly afterwards, and the tension between the various Beatles is quite apparent on-screen: George Harrison even quit while the cameras were rolling, although he did return – albeit temporarily. This long-lost Beatles artifact, which inspired Jackson to dig deeper with his Emmy-winning “The Beatles: Get Back” docuseries, captures director Michael Lindsay-Hogg’s fly-on-the-wall snapshot of the Fab Four’s creatively productive yet tense studio sessions for their final two albums — “Let It Be” and “Abbey Road” —

TOTAL RUNNING TIME: 1 Hour 28 Minutes
