Lorber Films has picked up all US rights to the documentary Who Is Harry Nilsson (And Why Is EverybodyTalkin’ About Him)?

John Scheinfeld’s film profiles the life and times of the singer-songwriter who was famous for being The Beatles’ favourite entertainer.

The star-studded documentary features interviews with Micky Dolenz, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Al Kooper, Randy Newman, Yoko Ono and Robin Williams, among others.

The film will premiere in New York on September 10 and will be released on DVD before the end of the year.

“This is one of those rare docs that leaves no stone unturned,” Kino Lorber CEO and co-president Richard Lorber said. “Besides all the amazing and exclusive material Scheinfeld managed to uncover, what impressed me most about Who is Harry Nilsson was the film’s capacity to make you fall in love with Nilsson’s work all over again.”
