Ringo Starr Reacts To Restored Beatles Documentary ‘Let It Be’


Reacting to the newly restored version of The Beatles documentary “Let It Be”, Ringo Starr gave his thumbs up.

When “Let It Be” premiered in 1970, it was met with negative reviews as it painted a bleak portrait of the rock band. However, the restored version of the documentary dropped on Disney+ this week.

“I was always moaning about the original film, because there was no real joy in it,” Starr told the Daily Beast about “Let It Be,” which was released just weeks after news of the Beatles’ split had hit the press.

Overall, the film was impressive, Starr said. “Now it’s got a start, a middle, and a finish. The start is very slow, and then we get into creating, and then we’re at it and then we’re out. I love it. But I’m in it, of course, so six hours is never long enough,” he said.

“Let It Be” was unavailable for public viewing for several decades, but the restored version is now available to watch for the first time in over 50 years.
