documentary

An exploration of the life, lessons, and legacy of iconic children's television host, Fred Rogers.

“As crazy as it sounds to say this about a documentary, Won’t You Be My Neighbor? is a must-see. It’s a beautiful look at the brilliant and charming man that was Fred Rogers. He’s a man who is officially my personal hero, thanks to this wonderful homage to an amazing individual. Thank you, Mister Rogers, for the many years of enlightenment, entertainment, wonder, and positivity. And thank you, Mister Neville, for the reminder of a man who was so integral to my own personal development. I’m already looking forward to my next viewing. We may never visit Mister Rogers’ neighborhood again, but I feel confident in saying that this film is the next best thing."

In 1959, Berry Gordy Jr. gathered the best musicians from Detroit's thriving jazz and blues scene to begin cutting songs for his new record company. Over a fourteen year period they were the heartbeat on every hit from Motown's Detroit era. By the end of their phenomenal run, this unheralded group of musicians had played on more number ones hits than the Beach Boys, the Rolling Stones, Elvis and the Beatles combined - which makes them the greatest hit machine in the history of popular music. They called themselves the Funk Brothers. Forty-one years after they played their first note on a Motown record and three decades since they were all together, the Funk Brothers reunited back in Detroit to play their music and tell their unforgettable story, with the help of archival footage, still photos, narration, interviews, re-creation scenes, 20 Motown master tracks, and twelve new live performances of Motown classics with the Brothers backing up contemporary performers.

documentary/biography/music

Before Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Tom Jones, Tony Bennett or Engelbert Humperdinck ever played the stages of Vegas, there was Louis Prima. One of America's most hypnotic and original performers, Prima's career spanned several decades and turned out hits like "That Old Black Magic," "Sing, Sing, Sing," "Just a Gigolo," "I Ain't Got Nobody" and "Jump, Jive an' Wail." In Disney's animated classic "The Jungle Book," Prima created the "hep" voice of King Louie the orangutan. This film profiles the magnetic Louis Prima in a nostalgic historical journey through the music scenes of a racy New Orleans, the swinging jazz culture of uptown New York and Las Vegas's "formative" years. As a solo act or with his wife, acclaimed singer Keely Smith, Louis Prima was and will forever be the "wildest" man in show business!
