Editorial Reviews

Rare indeed! Containing the earliest known footage of the Beatles from February 1962 is nothing to shrug off, and the treasure trove of home movies, personal photographs, private memorabilia and recently discovered film practically seal the deal: this belongs in your Fab Four collection! Also features new interviews with friends of the band, some of whom were there from the very start, including noted fan Phil Collins, former drummer Colin Hanton, tour manager Sam Leach, press officer Tony Barrow, roadie Tony Bramwell, and more. (1 hour 30 minutes)

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Worth It November 20, 2009
I almost think the other reviewers must have some sort of interest in selling this DVD. It's almost completely worthless. The "approximate" running time is 90 minutes but when you play it you'll see that it's just five separate 9-minute segments and some additional interview material from some of the people involved in making the DVD. There's not a lot of "new" footage; maybe a very short video clip here and there and a few rare photographs. And of course each of the 9-minute segments repeats a significant amount of material used to introduce the segment, which is obviously just a cheap way to add running time to the DVD. The only good thing to be said about it is that many of the people interviewed did have some association with the Beatles at some point in their history, but unfortunately they don't really have anything insightful to say. Just stuff like, "Yeah, John was a bad kid in school," or "When George joined the band he was much younger than the others."

1.0 out of 5 stars In it for the money December 13, 2009
Now and again, almost-famous people will think up brilliant ideas to get rich very fast by connecting themselves to succesful celebrities.
The most unashamed example for me is clearly 'The Beatles: Rare and Unseen'. Alarm bells should start ringing the minute you hear almost-but-not-quite Beatles songs. Furthermore, the not-so-famous celebs being interviewed use hollow superlatives about the Beatles having 'shook up the world' or having created a 'brilliant sound'. Mm, not really mindblowing, now is it? Phil Collins (who'd been interviewed for this so-called 'production') is probably closely related to the producer, because as a professional he surely would never have had anything to with this rubbish. I got my copy as a gift, which is the only reason I cannot return it. Unfortunately.
The five-star reviews for this product must have been created by the producer himself. If you read it, you see it isn't a review at all. It's just a bit of commercial copy, being re-used.

5.0 out of 5 stars The 1960's Live Again August 26, 2009
"The Beatles: Rare and Unseen" is a collection of home movies, personal photographs, recently rediscovered film, and true stories told by the people who were actually involved in the events. Content includes the earliest known footage of the Beatles on stage in Liverpool in 1962; film of the band at Caird Hall, Dundee, in October, 1964, during their tour of Scotland; behind-the-scenes footage of the filming of "Help" (February, 1965); the making of "Magical Mystery Tour" (September, 1967); and highlights of an interview conducted in New York City for French television. The DVD contains interviews with Phil Collins, musicians, and tour personnel, who provide anecdotes on traveling and working with the Fab Four during their heyday.

4.0 out of 5 stars Small pleasures, but worth it July 11, 2010
Verified Purchase
This title is a wee bit pricey for the content, but if you're interested in all available Beatles footage it is worth it. I was skeptical that there would be very much here I had not seen. Well there wasn't really but what there is I enjoyed very much. The new footage to my eyes anyway totaled only about five minutes but chopped up and repeated so many times with different commentary that it may seem more.Some of the interview subjects are interesting both in the main feature and in the extra bonus interview segments. Some even had a little new info or angles even to a long time Beatles student as myself.
If I were producing this title I would have added a separate chapter presenting all of the new footage without repeats or commentary overlaid. Still there are pleasures here for almost any level of Beatle fan to enjoy.
