To be honest, when this film came out, I turned my nose up at it, thinking it was rediculous for Peter Frampton, and the Bee Gee's to think they could compare to the Beatles. But When I got older, I caught it on T.V. and was very suprised. I think the problem most have with this film, is that it's not really a movie, but more like a video album, or narrated silent movie. I would give it a 5 star rating, but it's only on VHS, in standard format. It needs to be seen in wide screen, cause they had to stretch it to fit the screen, <annoyingly noticable in the begining and end sequences>. I wish it was on widescreen DVD format, cause my VHS version is getting quite worn.
Addendum, now I got my wish it's on DVD
One of the best transfers to 5.1 I have ever heard, they really did it right. Also was transfred from a 99 percent immaculate print of the movie. Only in a couple small 2 second sections can you actually see film wear. <noticeable on the George Burns scene right before Mr Kite, and also in the Billy preston seen near the end. Since I had previously only seen this movie on tv. and standard vhs, I am now discovering things that were chopped out to format it to standard screen. If you love the movie, you will love the DVD. Not much for speacial features, only the trailer, but they put the focus on what matters most, the sound and the video.
