    Documentary on Beatle buddy Harry Nilsson to be released on DVD

    "Who is Harry Nilsson (And Why Is Everybody Talkin' About Him)?," a documentary portrait of the late singer and Beatle buddy, will be released on DVD in October by Lorber Films.

    Lorber describes the film: "The Beatles said that Harry Nilsson was their favorite American musician. In his career, Nilsson won 2 Grammys and sold 17 gold records, and yet he is relatively unknown today. "Who Is Harry Nilsson?," a wildly entertaining, star-studded documentary, sets out to prove that he was one of the most talented singer-songwriters in pop music history.

    "Through a hall-of-fame roll call of interviews (and archival audio of Nilsson himself) with Brian Wilson, Randy Newman, Robin Williams, Micky Dolenz, Yoko Ono, and many others, director John Scheinfeld paints a detailed and revelatory portrait of this troubled genius. It delves deeply into his artistic process, including the genesis of classic tunes like “One is the Loneliest Number”, his combative friendship with John Lennon, and the addictions that haunted him inside and outside the studio. But most of all it depicts a devoted husband and father who finally found a measure of peace outside the passing glare of fame."

    Nilsson was also close friends with Ringo Starr, who also appears in the film along with Eric Idle, Van Dyke Parks, the Monkees, the Smothers Brothers and Jimmy Webb.

    Release date on the DVD is scheduled for October. Variety also reports the film will get a theater showing at New York City's Cinema Village in September.

    Nilsson Schmilsson is a pretty good album, a long time favorite of mine. I look forward to the DVD.
