History

In September 1967 The Beatles embarked on making their third film, this time conceived and directed by themselves.
Based on a loose unscripted narrative, in the spirit of the experimental mood of the time, and directed by The Beatles themselves, the film became the vehicle to present 6 new songs - Magical Mystery Tour, The Fool On The Hill, Flying, I Am The Walrus, Blue Jay Way and Your Mother Should Know.



Now, 45 years on, the virtually forgotten film has been fully restored and is being presented properly for the first time.



The restoration of Magical Mystery Tour has been overseen by Paul Rutan Jr. of Eque Inc., the same company that handled the much acclaimed restoration of Yellow Submarine. The soundtrack work was done at Abbey Road Studios by Giles Martin and Sam Okell.



All of the packages contain a host of special features, packed with unseen footage. There are newly-filmed interviews with Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and other members of the film's cast and crew, as well as a director's audio commentary recorded by Paul.

On the preorder page for one of the new 2012 editions of the "Magical Mystery Tour" movie, Amazon is showing old, negative reviews for a now-obsolete(and unauthorized) DVD release. These reports correctly inform the consumer of the poor audio & video quality of that unauthorized DVD, but when the new, high quality DVD & Bluray editions are released in October 2012, consumers who visit the pages for these new editions will see negative reviews of the unauthorized DVD, and possibly think that those reviews refer to the 2012 editions. Amazon needs to correct this situation, so that space is left open so that reviews of the new editions appear on the product pages for those new editions.

If anyone should ever doubt the Beatles greatness, this will NOT be the film to change their mind. It is a silly film. In fact, it is a very silly, very amateurish trifle. In fact it is downright bad. So why do I give it five big ones? Because it's The Beatles, of course. The Beatles were cranking it out for only seven years. There's a limited quantity of Beatles' product and that makes every bit of it precious!

Nevertheless, the casual viewer will probably be quite bewildered by this goofy curio of psychedelia. It has no script, no plot, and no acting to speak of. So, if you've never seen it, go in with LOW expectations. First off, understand that this is not a Beatles feature film. It was originally presented as a one-hour Beatles TV special, nothing more. The first viewing is apt to disappoint; but repeat viewing are apt to be rewarded. It is not a "good" film (in fact it is a "bad" film). But it is imaginative and energetic, it has its moments and it's Beatles!

For Beatles fans this lavish-attention release of MMT is way more than welcome! For the first time, we'll be able to see it in better than "bootleg" quality, much better! Just to hear the songs in remastered/remixed uncompressed (!) surround sound is reason enough to celebrate. Then there are the many extras and intriguing aspects (extra scenes? Songs "re-edited"?). I can't wait!!

Addendum: Having now experienced the blu ray, I like Magical Mystery Tour even more than before. It has a hip quality. It moves fast. The songs, of course, are great; and the accompanying videos are equal to anything M-TV would produce. The greatly improved picture and sound lift the film up a notch or two. Now that it sounds good, even the incidental music contributes.

Yes, the movie is cheaply made and amateurish, but I really don't care, because spliced in between the poor "acting," silly scenes, blurry photography etc is the pure magic of seeing the Beatles performing some of the greatest music ever written. When, the songs start, my heart still jumps, and I forget about the filler in between. In all fairness, this was an experiment for the Beatles; if the cinematic part of the experiment failed, what matters is that the music succeeded beyond all.

I received my set today...upon opening the box the first thing I see is my very own Ticket for the Magical Mystery Tour. The 10 x 10 book has a nice forward by Sir Paul..followed by a Beatles time period piece by Barry Miles. The Book concludes with a "Diary of the Tour" with many many pictures and copies of invoices from the filming. Then there is a 7 x 7 gatefold holding both the Blu-Ray and DVD. Then finally the 7 x 7 Magical Mystery Tour EP made in the USA!!!! A gorgeous Gatefold replication. Yes the one record Capitol refused to release in the US, but instead adding singles tracks to create a full album. Yes the disc labels are replications of the UK release but have "Made In The USA"!!!! So Roll Up for the Mystery Tour!!!!!

MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR was filmed in the fall of 1967, and was The Beatles' first major project after the death of manager Brian Epstein. While the film's soundtrack (a double-EP in Britain, an 11-song album in America, which was also imported into the UK, where it was eventually released on cassette in 1973 and on LP in 1976) was an enormous success, the film was not. It was first shown on the BBC on Boxing Day (26 December) 1967 in monochrome (most British viewers had black-and-white TV sets) and was not received well by the public, or by critics ("blatant rubbish" and "tasteless nonsense" were two of the milder descriptions). A second colo(u)r broadcast appeared on BBC2 on 05 January 1968, but only the few Britons who had "colour" TVs saw it, and the damage was done.

In America, both ABC and NBC withdrew their bids for a network broadcast of MMT; the film made its U.S. debut at New York's Fillmore East a few months later as part of a fundraising concert. Over the years, Apple rented the film to colleges and indie movie theaters. The film did not appear on American TV until it was syndicated in 1985, which was where I saw it for the first time. A few poor-quality VHS tapes appeared in the early-to-mid-1980s, but the first proper video release was in 1988, when Apple and MPI Home Video released an official VHS tape, with a restored soundtrack by George Martin.

In 1997, MPI released the film on DVD; I own The Beatles DVD Collector's Set that was released in 2000, which contains the original MPI DVD versions of MMT, HELP, THE FIRST U.S.
