Starring Harry Nilsson, one of the best songwriters of his time, according to peers like Brian Wilson and Randy Newman. Even the Beatles referred to him as their favorite "group" although he never, ever performed live. Memorable hits he sang include "Everybody's Talkin'" from the film Midnight Cowboy, to the soaring teen-angst anthem "Without You" to the inimitably catchy "Coconut" "You put the lime in the coconut" to "Me and My Arrow" and the theme song "Best Friend" from the hit television show, "The Courtship of Eddie's Father." All-star interviews with Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Yoko Ono, Van Dyke Parks, Jimmy Webb, Bryan Wilson and more describe the man who could drink John Lennon and Keith Moon under the table which contributed to his ultimate demise in 1992. Footage from television and radio shows and Nilsson's oral autobiography allow Harry to tell his own story, in his own words.

Writer/Director John Scheinfeld present at screening.

Crap, I really wanted to go to this. My uncle saw it in Santa Monica and said it was incredible.


Yes it was really good... hopefully it will come out on DVD.


I've been a fan of Nilsson for years but I'd never seen footage of him performing. The film would have been worth it for that alone.
