On this day in 1968, The Beatles released their feature-length animated motion picture entitled “Yellow Submarine”.
This film was “inspired by a song and hailed as an avant-garde amalgam of pop art, Beatles music, and highly innovative animation (The Beatles Store, 2013)”. According to Heinz Edelmann, the film’s art director, this film was a success because it was a series of interconnected short films that were a collage of classic and modern images.
