Who Is Harry Nilsson (And Why Is Everybody Talkin’ About Him)? – Trailer

Brilliant programme about a very talented but tragic figure … You’ll recognise a lot of the songs even if you don’t know his name.

A wildly entertaining, star-studded documentary about The Beatles‘ favorite American musician, WHO IS HARRY NILSSON (AND WHY IS EVERYBODY TALKIN’ ABOUT HIM)? is a vibrant and definitive portrait of one of the most talented singer-songwriters in pop music history. Directed by Emmy and Grammy nominee John Scheinfeld (THE U.S. VS. JOHN LENNON), the film combines compelling interviews with Nilsson’s family, friends and colleagues — including Brian Wilson, Randy Newman, Robin Williams, Micky Dolenz and Yoko Ono — with rare and never-before-seen archival footage, home movies, and excerpts from a recently discovered oral autobiography. The film delves deeply into Nilsson’s artistic process, his spirited relationship with John Lennon, and the additions that haunted him in and outside the studio — as well as the peace he found as a devoted husband and father.

And here’s a classic party tune:
