Trailer for Martin Scorsese’s new documentary on the quiet Beatle (side note- George was called ‘the quiet Beatle’ because when they landed at JFK in 1964, he had a sore throat and didn’t talk much during the press conference. Though, as we’ll probably see in this doc, George was actually quite vocal).
George Harrison fascinates me in the very best way possible. Really looking forward to this.
