The landmark film that captured the "vibe" of 1968, The Beatles Yellow Submarine returns after an 11 year moratorium from MGM Home Entertainment on September 14.
Proclaimed "The most stupendous animation feat in decades" (The Los Angeles Times), Yellow Submarine features the Fab Four's classics, "All You Need is Love", "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds," "Eleanor Rigby," "Nowhere Man," and "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band," among others.
Available on video cassette for $19.98 and DVD for $29.98, Yellow Submarine features a new, digitally renovated picture, remixed soundtrack with 5.1 Dolby x Surround Sound, and the never before released [in the USA] animated song, "Hey Bulldog."
