Default Who Is Harry Nilsson (And Why is Everbody Talkin' About Him?)

Apologies if this has been posted on the movie forum before, but I just watched this great doc on Harry Nilsson and I highly recommend it to Beatles diehards! There's a lot in it about his relationship to the band and his individual friendships with Ringo and John. There's also a funny, yet moving story near the end relating to George. I've always known about Harry's connection to John--the infamous "Lost Weekend"--and knew he was pals with Ringo too. But I never knew exactly how he came into their world and just how close and warm his friendships with the guys were. And after watching I understand why. Harry was the Beatles' best American friend, without a doubt.
And of course, there's Harry's music and incredible voice. With overdubbing on multiple tracks, he could harmonize with himself so beautifully! There are interviews with Yoko, May Pang, Derek Taylor's widow (Derek was a KEY figure in this) Micky Dolenz of the Monkees, a couple of Monty Pythoners, plus several other interesting people close to Harry.
It plays out like a "Behind the Music" VH1 bio, but is extremely well made, not unlike LennoNYC, for those who saw that last autumn.
You can see it on Netflix's on demand service, if you have a subscription, OR...you can watch it FOR FREE here:
