Paul Butterfield's photography style is like no other. On this film, he shows how the city of Pittsburgh, in the early 1970s, was not only a stepping stone for a popular musician, but the epicenter of a revolution. The film begins with a brief introduction to Paul's famous activities, then takes a look at his music, his first recording, and the way his career was influenced by his father, a German immigrant. Then, in 1980, Paul's music was still being recognized by music magazines and rock 'n' roll fans, and he began to get offers to participate in concerts around the country. He finally decided to perform in Pittsburgh, and his performance immediately caught the attention of Bob Seger, then one of the most successful musicians in the country. When Seger went to see the concert, he was amazed by what he heard from his son. On the road after his first concert, Paul went on tour with Seger, but he soon got distracted with the demanding schedule, and he felt tired and irritated. He realized that he could not compete with the brilliant, manic, and fully developed Seger. He began to feel tired and irritated as well. It seemed that Paul was simply not doing enough to produce and market his music. After a few months of quiet work, he went back to Seger's studio in New York to re-record his album. In the studio, he began to write, and by the time he finished recording the album, he realized that he had a great, big idea, and he began to think about it seriously. He then made the decision to quit his job and focus on the recording of his own album. But he did not stop to think whether this would be the right thing. He did not make this decision lightly. He sat down and wrote down everything he wanted to say and everything that had made him feel bad. He would spend the rest of his life writing and re-writing what he had written in the past, and he did not want to be alone. This was the essence of Paul's genius. He felt he could not live alone. He knew that he could not live a lie, that he could not simply remain focused on his work. He realized that it was not simply the next success that would bring him happiness, but it would be the right choice. Through this, he learned how to truly trust others, and that he could truly be a great artist. In his life, he became a talented musician, who was constantly seeking a way to make a difference in the world. As time went on, he began to achieve the status of a much respected musician. But by now, he felt he had enough. He believed he had no other goal. He was tired, and was just plain tired of all the work he had put into his career. After two years of not seeing his family, he finally made the decision to come home. He was living on a cruise ship in New York, and his mother finally convinced him to take some time off. He finally returned to Pittsburgh, and was arrested for "malicious mischief" after the police discovered that he had broken into the police station in order to get a copy of his father's album. By the time he was arrested, Paul had been living in his parents' home for over two years. He was not a "real" person to them. He had just been living on the cruise ship, and was not a person they could accept as their own son. He was a prisoner of his own selfishness. When they found out that he had fled to the U.S., they were devastated. He made the mistake of telling them that he was now legally a U.S. citizen. He was arrested, and brought to Pittsburgh. He was the most wanted man in the country, and was put in jail for another four months. He was on a "lockdown," and would not be released until he agreed to move from the city of Pittsburgh to the county. He agreed to leave because of his family, and the fact that he wanted to be near his father. He was on a plane to Chicago, and was arrested again on a "minor misdemeanor" charge. He was taken to the jail in Chicago, and was held there for nine days. In the meantime, he did not spend much time in the jail. At one point, the jail's shower

It's nice to be reminded of the guy that wrote "My Dinner with Andre" and "Showgirls" again. But I have to admit that I had never heard of Paul Butterfield, and I read that his performance on this show was recorded by Barbara Walters for the record. Now that I've got a little background, I would recommend this documentary, although it doesn't really describe all the work that he did, other than giving a few brief thoughts on his life. But it certainly gets you to know the man, and his work. He came up in Hollywood as a teenager and did a few films. He was part of an open-mike band with his brother, John (now Denny), who later moved to New York City to start his own studio. Paul is in some ways a character actor, although I haven't seen any of his other movies. He got his big break with "My Dinner with Andre" and got some pretty good reviews for that film. It was that good a deal of what he did. I haven't seen "Showgirls" (as I've been told) but I'm sure it was as good or better than that film. I don't know enough about her to know if they're comparable, but I think "My Dinner with Andre" was a good movie. I guess I should point out that this is a documentary of sorts, and while there are some interview segments, there isn't a lot of video of any of the "live" shows that he did. We have a bunch of clips from the shows that are pretty good, but they don't really say anything. I don't think you need to have seen the actual concerts to appreciate this movie. We get to hear clips from the gigs and we get to hear some of his soundcheck performances. And we see clips of the music videos that he did. There's not a lot of footage of him on the radio, which is a little weird, but not nearly as bad as it could have been. But the film does have some really funny moments. There's the time that he goes on a radio show that he's interviewed about an upcoming show and interviews the host and some other people and he starts talking about how he got his ideas for the song "I'm the Walrus", which is a little bit cheesy. I don't know if this was some sort of joke, but I did find it a little funny. I haven't seen a lot of the "Live" shows since he died, but I did see a couple that I didn't like. I've seen one where he was interviewing Nancy Wilson and his live show was cut short. I don't know if that was just what happened, or if it was the recording of the show or something, but I wasn't really impressed. I don't know if that was really a fan of his or a fan of the show or just some oddball who wasn't too much into his music. But it wasn't really that good. It was interesting to see some of the footage of some of the recording sessions that they had on that show, but I don't think that it was really worth the time. I think it was an interesting documentary, and it shows a lot about how they filmed it. I think it might be good for someone who hasn't seen a lot of his work, but it wouldn't really be something you could really recommend to someone who has. So I would recommend it to someone who has seen his other work or just curious about his career. It's a good documentary and it's not bad, but it's not great either.

This documentary chronicles the career of Paul Butterfield and his work with Ronnie Hawkins, the most influential and longest running headliners for The Who. What's interesting about the film is the contrast between what happens backstage as they're in the midst of making records versus what happens after they've retired from the band. So, Butterfield can say all he wants, but one of the key parts of his story has to do with having to come to terms with his sexual identity. It also covers his "hardship" living in a New Jersey house he owned during the time he was living in The Who. As a result, the film doesn't give you the complete picture. But what it does does give you the most important bits. The performances in the film are very good. Peter Jones, played by Richard Harris, is completely believable as a private man with a wife and kids. Sheryl Crow is a fantastic singer and of course the music is amazing. As for the work of actor Michael Caine, he is obviously having fun. This is a movie that you will either love or hate. Some of the scenes are very uncomfortable, especially those involving his marriage to Sheryl. But it's a pleasure to watch. The film is divided into two sections. The first is the "The Who" days. This section is mostly dedicated to music-related scenes. And although there is a lot of talk about bands like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and Neil Young, we get a great view of the main performances, most of which are pretty good. The second section focuses on the private life of Butterfield. The cameraman, Peter Straughan, is usually the focus of most documentaries. But this is the first time where we get to see him interact with the performers. We get a great view of the things that were going on behind the scenes of making the movie. Of course, we don't get to see a lot of the intimate moments that the people who worked for the film wanted to keep from us. But it's a treat nonetheless. A definite recommendation.

Paul Butterfield was one of the greatest rock and roll players in history and probably one of the most respected personalities in popular music. His career started in 1959 and he retired in 1974. He went on to play with the Rolling Stones for over forty years. But he always seemed to be a man with a lot of good in his life. He was an extremely close friend and never held back when it came to telling his friends or friends of friends how he felt. Butterfield said in his autobiography, "The Jazz Singer" that he was "the finest living living Jazz musician". Although his guitar playing was good, he often gave up playing in the 1950's due to drug use and an inordinate amount of personal problems. But his music was exceptional and his presence was always a powerful and a key part of popular music. But after his death in 1974, many people wanted to see his music and they made it happen. However, he was not aware of this until after his death. He was a part of "The Jazz Singer", a documentary about the life of Paul Butterfield. The film reveals that he was a poor alcoholic and his personal life was messy. One of the things that really surprised me was how good he seemed to be in his old age. He didn't seem to suffer the effects of alcohol like other musicians. But he was no longer the elegant, brilliant player he once was. The film also shows how the press made him look and the sound was a major factor. People would interview Butterfield and he'd say that he couldn't hear the music as well as he did and that his voice was not as good as it used to be. Another thing was how the media treated him. He would have interviews where he was asked about the things he could do to make himself sound better. And it was shown that this really didn't bother him because the questions were always about the good things he had done. I think this is a great film. I don't know if I'd want to see it again or ever. But I thought it was well done and it was well presented. I was happy to see that they didn't include interviews from all of the major musicians that played with him. I think this was an excellent film. It is so sad that there are people like Paul Butterfield and I think people are very embarrassed about him. He did the best he could with all of his personal problems and even his mortality. I really recommend this movie to anyone.

Paul Butterfield died at the tender age of 34 after a tragic accident involving a firework in his window. He had been having a great time in his former home town of London and had received many friends in his work as an illustrator and illustrator. However, he had also been to Italy, France and Germany, and was very familiar with foreign cities. He and his wife Anne in Italy where she worked as a doctor, her husband at home and both growing old. She decided that she wanted to pursue her dream to become a writer and chose Paul Butterfield as the inspiration. However, there were few opportunities in his line of work and he was forced to choose between his profession and his wife and their five children. But his passion for making watercolours drew him to the "Caro Della Citta." and he had this special ability to visualize so vividly that he could even imagine characters in the watercolour, create a miniature landscape from them, and he also drew real animals and scenery as in his "Caro Della Citta." This film was very poignant, but the message was conveyed the most powerfully, the pain he had suffered and it was his desire for a better life for his family and the children that had not been recognized by the people around him. The film also gave a sense of the everyday problems of the children and their mothers, and it was good to see how their lives were affected by this tragic accident. He was there for his family and his friends, and he was devoted to his profession and his work. He was a man of many talents, including his talent to write and his love of his work, and this film captured both of those qualities.

The Paul Butterfield Story: 10 Years of Delivering What it Promised - Paul Butterfield and his music. Almost 50 years ago the day was set when musician and producer Paul Butterfield would be a household name with his band The Wowies and his meteoric rise to fame. From the beginning to the end of the 40-year journey that was the Wowies, the documentary was a testament to Butterfield's genius and the people around him who loved him. We were able to follow Butterfield from the beginning of his success with his single "The Only Way I Know" on the radio in his hometown of Flint, Michigan to the very last moment when he was arrested for throwing a chair at the police officer at the end of the series of concerts that formed the Wowies. We also had the opportunity to speak with many of the band members and many of the people who loved and supported the Wowies. The documentary also showed us the vision and stories behind many of the very famous albums from The Wowies, such as "Your Love" and "I've Been Loving You Too Long," including the last album released by the Wowies, The Love Journey. The documentary also included much information about the Wowies that we were not able to see in the film, such as the story behind the band's most popular song, "How Do You Like Me Now?" What made it so special to the fans? Who didn't love the Wowies? How does Paul Butterfield feel about being the spokesman for The Wowies? How did Paul Butterfield end up being the first ever black actor to be nominated for an Academy Award? What is the meaning of "The Only Way I Know" to this generation? All these questions and more are answered here. As an added bonus, the documentary was narrated by Warren Ellis. (We have to say, Paul Butterfield is very good at being the spokesman for the Wowies.) The movie focuses on the songs and albums from the Wowies, but it also took a look at the man who made the Wowies popular. All of the interviews were done with Butterfield's own words, so you could really feel that this was just Paul Butterfield being himself. We also got to hear many of the other people who loved The Wowies, like Johnnie Taylor, John Mellencamp, Steve Earle, and Paul Gilbert. The documentary also had plenty of video footage, and the ones that were available, such as video from the Golden Gate Theatre, the Mervyn's Theater, and The Jimi Hendrix Experience, were very good. We really hope that the rest of the Wowies movie is as good as this one. I just finished watching the Wowies movie. I really felt it was very good. We were able to see interviews with many people, such as Cher and Billy Joel, and also some from the people who loved The Wowies. The Wowies movie is very good and I would highly recommend it.

While Paul Butterfield was a radical figure in British popular culture, his rise to fame was less unexpected than it was for a viewer. An ex-student of the London Conservatory, and an accomplished musician, Butterfield had recently been ennobled by the Government's "Vaudeville" Act of 1925, and he began touring America in 1927 with his first classical music album. In his presentation at the 1983 premiere of his latest film, "The Paul Butterfield Story", the man himself explains how the image of the famous performer may have been partially inspired by the old photographs that British papers published of him in the 1930s. The former student then describes the evolution of his work, which took him from early jazz to classical to "anything goes" to "purely surreal" in the 60s. Much of this comes from his own autobiographical film "Salvation, Salvation" which he made for BBC Radio 5 in 1971. Its running time was just about 4:00. Butterfield does not try to make this film about the young Paul Butterfield - he doesn't even mention him by name - but he makes the very clear point that much of the film focuses on him and his rise to fame. By showing us Paul's rise and the critical reaction to it, Butterfield shows that if we see the news of our own society, we miss the artistic world that matters most, and he argues that much of the anger directed at Western society today is driven by the same self-absorbed types who see themselves as "the One". Perhaps Butterfield's own "Salvation, Salvation" may have been a bit too naive for its own good. His greatest disappointment may have been the "anti-British feeling" he had to face in the US in the 60s and the accompanying backlash against him. He hoped to find a reaction to "Salvation, Salvation" in the US, and sadly he didn't get it. "Salvation, Salvation" is essentially a director's cut, as Butterfield edited the film to suit his taste and the director's taste for "artsy" subject matter. It is one of the best films of its type of recent years, and I urge the viewer to watch it in its entirety. There is much to enjoy here. Butterfield's analysis of the sort of music he produced is a terrific analysis of the current trend to use modern popular music as an excuse to inject political or social issues. It is just one of the many insights the film contains, though it is not so much a compilation of new information as a summary of old ones. The film is balanced in every way. It is much more than a musical biopic, however, and Butterfield is an excellent film maker, and one who is well-suited to exploring the topics he covers here.

A movie to be seen, a movie to be heard, a movie to be seen again and again. The set up was a perfect beginning to the story of Paul Butterfield. He was a half hearted, depressed, failed entertainer who was a man without a musical career. The tragedy that happened to him and his family in the early days of his career and his tragic death was a tragedy that never fully shook his spirits and thoughts. From an artistic standpoint it was a good and interesting set up. The question as to whether and how much the famous, big shot Chicago audience would react to this movie was a good one to ask. The movie itself didn't try to answer that question. It was a well put together movie that connected with the audience in a number of ways. It made you feel how Paul Butterfield was feeling, the sorrow and pain in his heart, the laughter and excitement that was pouring out of him. It showed us how he felt his life was incomplete and the heartbreak of trying to complete it, in the only way he knew how. It showed the audiences his frustrations and disappointments as well as his feelings of loneliness and love. It showed us his laughter and joy in his world of music. And it also showed his sadness and sadness when he lost his wife and her emotional impact on his life. From a business standpoint this movie was very well put together. The footage of him and the people in the crowd to his concerts was beautifully integrated into the movie. From the hand held camera shots of him and his band to his lip reading of the crowd on stage, it was very well done. What I didn't like in this movie was the use of the music. This was an obvious and very poor use of music. It seemed like they could have used any number of people to add some background music to the movie. For a "Furlong" biopic I found the use of Paul's love songs to be extremely rare. The only one that really came to mind was "The Light That Never Goes Out" with Randy Newman. I know the songs were really important to the music of the times, but I didn't see the need to use them in this movie. The movie also didn't tell the audience what went wrong with Paul Butterfield and his career. It only showed him having the misfortune of being able to sell out a show and his failure to get his own act off the ground. It only told you that his career wasn't going to be as successful as people thought. The movie was very good, but the music was so lacking. All in all this is a movie that needs to be seen, but if you want to hear or hear for yourself check out The Paul Butterfield Story and you will see that the movie was not all it was cracked up to be. It is worth seeing and I would recommend it to anyone interested in music, his biography or just an artist to be told.

The Paul Butterfield story is a part of a biopic of American musician Paul Butterfield (1930-1985), who is one of the biggest musicians of all time. The film is directed by Henry Lau and Walter Haas, the directors of the Beatles: An Animated History and most recently by director Alvin Sargent, an animation director and editor who worked on the Harry Potter series. The story revolves around the fame of Butterfield, who went on to be a pop star. He created the original song "I'll Be There For You" in 1955 and popularized funk music. From there, he met Muddy Waters, who became a huge star. In 1961, Butterfield and his band (later with the Rolling Stones) became the first rock band to record the biggest song ever, "Sympathy For The Devil," and it was covered by Bob Dylan in 1968. Their later hits, such as "Walk" and "New York State of Mind," also influenced many others. The film begins with interviews with Butterfield and his band members, family members, and musicians about his early life. His brother, Larry Butterfield, plays a bit part. Then comes his father, who was a singer and pianist, and later played in jazz bands and was known as a great piano player. His mother, Annie, played in a string ensemble, and then later became a singer. Later, she recorded as a solo artist. Their father married a Spanish woman named Nadia, and she produced the band. In addition to family history, the film gives a sense of how the band evolved. They started as a band, and began writing and playing songs. They became the Rolling Stones, with songs such as "Gimme Shelter" and "Sympathy For The Devil." After they were famous, they began to write more about their musical background, and it became apparent that the music was almost identical to the same roots of the British music of the 1950s. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the film. The information is well-researched, the subject matter is well-done, and the film offers a nice blend of drama and music. I would recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys rock music and the music history genre.
