  1. “Yellow Submarine” ‘s low rating is a bit of a surprise considering it took 4 years for this movie to get on TV and Beatlemania was still going strong. The reason you don’t really see either this film or “Let It Be” on TV now has to with Apple Corp’s partial ownership of both.

    1. Yes, because the Beatles had no problems with “Submarine”. On the other hand Yoko, Paul, and Ringo hate “Let It Be” because it casts a negative light on the Beatle legacy. Remember, it was shot during the break-up period.
