LONDON (AP) — The animated Beatles movie Yellow Submarine has been carefully restored frame-by-frame for DVD release this year.


Specialists worked for four months to individually clean each frame of the 1968 surreal tale by hand, the Beatles' holding company Apple Corps Ltd said Tuesday.


The specialists chose not to use automated software because of the delicate nature of the hand-drawn artwork, the company added.


The colourful movie, a fantasy that features cartoon versions of the Beatles and images from some of their psychedelic songs, is currently out of print. It features some of the band's greatest hits including Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds, Eleanor Rigby and When I'm Sixty-Four.
