The second part of this utterly absorbing account of Harrison’s life opens with a handwritten entry in his diary for the date 10 Jan 1969. “Got up. Went to Twickenham. Rehearsed until lunchtime – left the Beatles.”
And so the concluding chapter of his story is set in motion, a story that’s punctuated with candid interviews – Eric Clapton describes how he stole Harrison’s wife, Pattie – wonderful archive footage and, best of all, music from Harrison’s own songbook.
The story of the Beatles so often concentrates on Lennon and McCartney. This unmissable film underlines the importance of Harrison to that legacy.
Part two of two. Martin Scorsese documentary tracing Harrison's post-Beatle days, including his solo career and work with the Traveling Wilburys, and the financial backing he gave to the production of Monty Python's Life of Brian. His love of motor racing is also explored, as is his family life, which includes an account of the 1999 attack on Harrison and his wife by an intruder. Featuring contributions from wife Olivia and son Dhani, racing driver Jackie Stewart, musician Tom Petty and actor Eric Idle.
