Yellow Submarine
Blu-ray ($34.98)

The Beatles’ 1968 movie classic, a trippy-triumph collage of groundbreaking animated filmmaking that included the hit songs “All You Need Is Love,” “When I’m Sixty-Four,” “Eleanor Rigby” and “Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds,” has for years been unavailable to collectors except for versions replicated on scratchy VHS tapes. Now with its original film print meticulously restored frame-by-frame and re-photographed in the crystal-clear digital format, it makes its hi-res debut with a making-of documentary, commentary, behind-the-scene photos, and a 16-page booklet with an appropriately salutatory essay by Disney/Pixar honcho John Lasseter.
