Scorsese's George Harrison Doc To Premiere In October
Film documents former Beatle's lifeBillboard reports that in the film, Scorsese traces Harrison's life from his beginnings in Liverpool through his life as a musician, philanthropist and filmmaker. Home movies and photographs that have never been seen or heard before are complemented by interviews with Eric Clapton, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, George Martin, Paul McCartney, Yoko Ono, Tom Petty, Phil Spector, Ringo Starr and Jackie Stewart.
