Paul Williams Still Alive

Do you remember Paul Williams, the short, round, eyeglass-wearing actor/composer who was all over the television in the '70s — and authored a number of unforgettable songs including "Rainbow Connection," Three Dog Night's "An Old Fashioned Love Song" and The Carpenters' "We've Only Just Begun"? Rumor had it that he had died. But thanks to filmmaker Steven Kessler's persistence, Williams has been found to be alive and well and still quite popular in the Philippines. In his entertaining and at times moving documentary, Kessler, who becomes quite attached to his subject, follows Williams while recounting his life story. Tonight's special screening of the film features a post-screening Q&A with the once Hollywood giant.
