The Beatles go digital

It's low-tech black and white, but the fab four never looked better in a new digital transfer of "A Hard Days Night," just released by MPI Home Video.

If watching the Beatles isn't enough, try interacting with 'A Hard Day's Night." The Voyager Interactive CD-ROM of the film is a few years old, but it continues to be a big seller in both Macintosh and IBM formats. Not only can you watch the entire film on your computer monitor, you can also cross-reference scenes and songs ... and every word of the script.

From the beginning, I guess you could say "Help!" was less ... digital. (Remember the ongoing threat to Ringo's finger?) Nevertheless, the Beatles' second film is also available in a feature-laden videocassette release from MPI in much fresher color. Especially red.

Travelers on the long and winding information superhighway will also find Beatle sites ... not only dozens of unofficial ones, but also World Wide Web pages from Capitol Records; ABC, home of "The Beatles Anthology;" and from Life magazine.
