Synopsis

Johnny Mercer: The Dream's on Me
Director Bruce Ricker teams with Oscar-winning filmmaker Clint Eastwood to craft this comprehensive look at the life and music of Johnny Mercer, who penned such timeless hits as "Moon River". "That Old Black Magic", and "Jeepers Creepers". Interviews with singers Tony Bennett and Julie Andrews, composers, filmmakers, music historians, and Broadway producers offer insight into what it was that made Mercer's songs so special, and clips of artists like Barbra Streisand, Fred Astaire, Ella Fitzgerald, and Nat King Cole, among others, performing his work, give testament to the enduring appeal of the music he created. Rare interviews with the composer himself, and archival interviews with Mercer's wife Ginger, among others, offer a vivid portrait of the man behind the music. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
