I thought he dyed his hair blonde for the ATWIAD album.Hence the picture of a blonde headed Prince wearing the raspbery beret outfit on the album cover

No. The question was has anyone watched it on a 4K device, which upscales.

Any of you watched purple rain on a 4ktv? It looks really great and I have noticed a few things For instance,at the beginning when prince opens up with "Let's go crazy" .On the DVD you can't see him face but now you van clearly see his face and you can tell that prince is lip synching.The words don't quite match And the next thing I noticed is how obvious it is that during the "take me with u" part,it is obvious that prince isn't on the motorcycle except for the close up shots. Is there anything you have noticed while watching this movie in 4k?

I NOTICED THE DIRECTOR OF THIS MOVIE IS HORRIBLE

God, if only. I imagine it looking very Sheila E Romance 1600 era. Or maybe the estate found some and are saving them for an ATWIAD SDE. That would be something.

TTD went blonde for his 2nd or 3rd album (can't recall at the moment). I remember at the time thinking that's how Prince would've looked.

So the guy in the cloud suit on the cover of ATWIAD is the closest we'll see Prince as a blonde . . . it would have really shocked a lot of people!

The wig is very obvious in the motorcycle scenes reshot in LA.

Note also that Apples' hair is DRY.

Hardly. The studio threatened to take the film over (insurance) and have someone else complete it. They had to rush through the concert scenes and knowing how few takes were done, I think they did a more than decent job.
IIRC, Prince had to put up more money to keep the film in his and his managers' hands.

https://www.bbc.com/news/...s-39632898

Prince's former art director Steve Parke recently published a book featuring the intimate, behind-the-scenes photographs he took of the star during his time at Paisley Park.

He also recounts the time Prince invited him to watch a montage of old performances he was preparing for the American Music Awards. When a scene from Purple Rain appeared, the star bellowed, "Look at that wig!" and burst out laughing.

Parke later asked Prince's hair stylist Earl Jones about the comment. He explained the star had had to reshoot a few scenes after the filming wrapped - but he had already cut his hair and bleached it blond - necessitating the bouffant hairpiece.

Jones added that Prince had reacted so badly to the bleach that his hair started breaking off, so he had to let it grow out, and dye it back to black.

"The hairstyle in Raspberry Beret was literally all I could do with it."

So then he had a wig during the tour?

No.
The Purple Rain tour ended April 7, 1985.
The ATWIAD album was released April 22, 1985 (no promo or video, initially.
The Raspberry Beret video was shot June 5, 1985.

Need to look for photos between those dates.
Did the inspiration for the bleached hair come from the album portrait?.

Is the 4k an improvement over the blu ray? I'm one of those still not believing 4k beats Blu Ray enough to justify a replacement of my blu ray collection.

VHS to DVD - quantum leap forward.

DVD to Blu Ray - enormous leap forward, nearly as much as VHS -DVD

BLu Ray to 4K - far less a leap.
