"Who Is Harry Nilsson?"

Below is the trailer for the John Scheinfeld-directed documentary about Harry Nilsson, the velvet-voiced American singer-songwriter who is most famous for the song, "Everybody's Talkin'" (off the Midnight Cowboy soundtrack). In terms of relevance to this blog, he was an artist much revered by The Beatles, and he developed lasting friendships with both John and Ringo. It was Nilsson who served as John's primary partner-in-crime during the latter's debaucherous, 18-month "lost weekend." The two also collaborated musically, with superb results.

Read a review of the doc here.
