Beatles legends Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr have reportedly blocked the re-release of the notorious LET IT BE film.
The documentary, originally intended to show the Fab Four at work in the studio, instead illustrated the extreme tensions between the musicians as the band was on the verge of breaking up.
It famously included scenes of MCCartney and George Harrison bickering over the latter's guitar-playing, and footage of an apparently disinterested John Lennon with his wife Yoko Ono.
Although the film was shown in cinemas in the early 1970s, and released on VHS in the 1980s, it has been out of circulation for more than 20 years.
And now the two surviving Beatles have allegedly blocked plans for a DVD release.
A source tells U.K. newspaper the Daily Express, "There has been talk of Let It Be finally being released but now there has been a change of heart.
"The Beatles are still a massive global brand and it's felt it won't be helped if the public sees the darker side of the story. Neither Paul nor Ringo would feel comfortable publicising a film showing The Beatles getting on each other's nerves."

I think it's a bit cowardly for Sir Paul and Mr. Star to keep this off the market.Let It Be is one of the (if not THE) most important music history documentaries ever made.It takes NOTHING away from their being the most important music legends in history!C'mon guys, do you want to be the music industries equivalent to the plastic corporate Disneyland?John Cheney
