Beatles' George Harrison Hits The Big Screen In Scorsese Doc
The trailer for Martin Scorsese's George Harrison documentary has been released. "Living In The Material World" will be broadcast over two nights by HBO on October 5 and 6. Scorsese says of Harrison's importance: "George was making spiritually awake music. We all heard and felt it and I think that was the reason he came to occupy a very special place in our lives." The documentary looks at George Harrison's life from humble beginnings in Liverpool to global superstardom and includes interviews with many of Harrison's closest friends. The film also features plenty of never-seen-before footage. The film doesn't shy from Harrison's darker side, showing footage of a ravaged performance from his 1974 solo tour, and hinting at challenges in his marriage. "He never said he was a saint, but he always said he was a sinner", says Olivia, his wife. "He wanted to do everything in life. He really did."
Thanks for the report to Andrew Vaughan, Gibson.com.
