    This restored, animated valentine to the Beatles offers viewers the rare chance to see a work that's been substantially improved by its technical facelift, not just super-sized with extra footage. Recognising that its song-studded soundtrack alone makes Yellow Submarine a video annuity, United Artists has lavished a frame-by-frame refurbishment of the original feature, while replacing its original monaural audio tracks with a meticulously reconstructed stereo mix that actually refines legendary original album versions. What emerges is a vivid time capsule of the late 1960s and a minor milestone in animation. The music represents the quartet's zenith--Rubber Soul, Revolver and Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. The story line, cobbled together by producer Al Brodax and a committee of writers, is a broad, feather-light allegory set in idyllic Pepperland, where the gentle citizens are threatened by the nasty, music-hating Blue Meanies and their surreal arsenal of henchmen, with the Beatles enlisted to thwart the bad guys. Visually, designer Heinz Edelmann mixes the biomorphic squiggles, day-glo palette and Beardsley-esque portraits of Peter Max with rotoscoped still photographs and film; Edelmann's animated collages also nod to Andy Warhol and Magritte in properly psychedelic fashion, which works wonderfully with such terrific songs. High-orthodox Beatlemaniacs can still grouse that the animated Fab Four are (literally) flat archetypes, but that's missing the sheer bloom of the music or the giddy, campy fun of the visuals. Making sense of the story is second to submerging blissfully in the sights and sounds of this video treat. --Sam Sutherland

    World War Two had ended in Europe but still raged across the wide Pacific. And in a string of armed encampments within the US indigenous Japanese Americans remained incarcerated in prison camps imprisoned for the duration solely on the basis of their ethnic origin. Racial hatred was rife against all ethnic Japanese an American phenomenon misdirected against their own in the wake of Pearl Harbour. All of this was still at a fever pitch when in June of 1945 two months before VJ Day James Cagney through the production company he owned with his brother William produced and starred in Blood on the Sun one of the most powerful films to try to explain exactly how the Japanese 'Co-Prosperity Sphere' came into mortal conflict with the United States. Based on historical fact this rivetting brutal action-packed motion picture traces the unintended unveiling of the dreaded Tanaka Plan for Japanese world domination of which the 'Co-Prosperity Sphere' was the outpictured faade. Cagney portrays an American reporter toiling in pre-war Japan who completely innocently is given for safekeeping a purloined copy of the secret plan by his newspaper buddy Wally Ford. The Japanese know Ford has uncovered their secret and are willing to perform any act - including murder - to prevent their true intentions from being revealed before they were ready to strike. A beautiful Japanese secret agent played by Sylvia Sidney is sent to romance and ensnare Cagney and every thuggish stop is pulled out to retrieve the plan and prevent him from surviving long enough to get it to the American Embassy and into the world press.
