PHIL SPECTOR (2013) TV Movie Trailer: Al Pacino, Helen Mirren, HBO

Al Pacino Phil Spector

Phil Spector Trailer. David Mamet‘s Phil Spector (2013) TV movie trailer for HBO stars Al Pacino, Helen Mirren, Jeffrey Tambor, Jenn Lyon, and Clara Mamet. Phil Spector‘s plot synopsis: “PHIL SPECTOR was one of the biggest music producers of the ’60’s, having worked with greats like The Beatles, The Ramones, and Ike and Tina Turner, producing more than 25 Top 40 hits in that era. However, his life spun out of control into the ’70’s and beyond, even as he sporadically continued to produce music. In 2009, he was convicted of the second-degree murder of actress Lana Clarkson.

Now, writer-director David Mamet (GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS) is tackling the infamous music producer’s murder trial with PHIL SPECTOR, a biopic starring Al Pacino as the titular enigma. Co-starring is Helen Mirren and Jeffrey Tambor as two of his defense attorneys.”

More on Spector’s musical career:

The originator of the “Wall of Sound” production technique…Some of his famous girl groups are The Ronettes and The Crystals. After this initial success, Spector later worked with artists including Ike and Tina Turner, John Lennon, George Harrison, and the Ramones with similar acclaim. He produced The Beatles’ album Let It Be, and the Grammy Award–winning Concert for Bangladesh by former Beatle George Harrison. In 1989, Spector was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a non-performer. The 1965 song “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin'”, produced and co-written by Spector for The Righteous Brothers, is listed by BMI as the song with the most U.S. airplay in the 20th century.

This movie looks interesting (Mamet wrote it) especially the attorneys trying to save Spector despite his antics.

Favorite line: “The first time you got felt up, guess what: You were listening to one of my songs.”

Phil Spector also stars James Tolkan, Matthew Rauch, Natalija Nogulich, Martin Jarvis, Lauren Schacher, Matt Malloy, Steve Park, Jack Wallace, David Aaron Baker, and Kate Blumberg.
