Yellow Submarine

I must confess to never having been a fan of this animated feature based on the music of The Beatles but upon a recent gawking I must say it it is better than I had thought. The script, partly provided by Erich Segal of LOVE STORY fame is more complex than I had credited it, the animation style not nearly as primitive as I recalled an overall the film far more enjoyable than I had remembered. Sure, somebody was dipping into the old acid pot while this was being conceptualized but these were the late Sixties and that is to be expected. Not just a period piece and worth a closer look.
