TINY TIM: KING FOR A DAY
Johan Von Sydow
DOC NYC, Florida, USA Film Festival, Calgary Underground
A portrait of the eccentric performer.
I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
For a brief but wondrous time in the late 1960s, Tiny Tim was, improbably, a household name. Generating attention for his distinctive falsetto vocal stylings and unusual appearance, the performer began appearing on various television programs, culminating in his wedding on The Tonight Show, which was watched by more than 40 million people. For Tiny Tim, born Herbert Khaury, it was the fulfillment of a lifetime’s dream to find love and acceptance, but his fame would prove heartbreakingly fleeting.
