This four-DVD set gathers Help!, Magical Mystery Tour, and two documentaries: You Can't Do That!: The Making of a Hard Day's Night and The First U.S. Visit in a cardboard slipcase. While the title may be a bit boastful considering the two best Beatle films, Hard Day's Night and Let It Be, are missing, there is still plenty of great material here -- and the prints and sound are excellent (even though the made for TV Mystery Tour never looked all that spectacular to begin with). There is also some nice additional material sprinkled across the discs, like archival newsreel footage on each disc and a few cute trivia quizzes. It may not be the "ultimate," but it sure makes it convenient to get these titles in one fell swoop.
