This was a five star wonderful documentary about a larger than life songwriter who I had never heard of but learned I knew and loved many of his songs. The story will leave you smiling, singing and tearful. He was a jewish boy from brroklyn with music soul from harlem who touched the lives of so many famous singers and songwirters of his time. Don\'t miss this!
