Abstract:

The Beatles said that Harry Nilsson was their favorite American musician. Nilsson won two Grammys and was the recipient of 17 gold records, yet he is relatively unknown today. Who Is Harry Nilsson?, a wildly entertaining, star-studded documentary, tells the story of one of the most talented singer-songwriters in pop music history. His hits include the Grammy-winning "Everybody's Talkin" and "Without You," as well as "Coconut" and "One (Is The Loneliest Number)." The film reveals how his personal life was as complex and contradictory as his music, from his spirited relationship with John Lennon to his close bond with Ringo Starr. Director John Scheinfeld paints a detailed and revelatory portrait of an extraordinary artist featuring over 50 Nilsson recordings, as well as rare or never-before-seen film clips, home movies, photos from the Nilsson family album and interviews with those who knew him well.
