Role for role and pint for pint, there have been few actors in the history of the dramatic arts who could match Richard Harris.
Through insider interviews, film clips and archival material, BIOGRAPHY® explores the achievements and antics, the highs and lows, of the intriguing, highly amusing life of this unique personality.
A Limerick lad through and through, Harris exploded on the screen in the 60's and won fans worldwide as Arthur in 1967's Camelot. Quickly establishing himself as a vibrant presence on stage and screen, his after-work exploits earned him a reputation as one of the wildest playboys of his era. After his early successes - an Oscar® nomination in 1964, Camelot in 1967, even a #2 spot on the Billboard pop chart for "MacArthur Park" - his reputation caught up with him and he spent the 70's and 80's, as he put it, "drifting from one piece of crap to another."
A new generation of fans was fortunate enough to enjoy Harris' immense talents and charisma as his career resurged after 1990's "The Field." Fully resurrected, if not reformed, Harris shone in a series of plum roles in such films as Unforgiven, Gladiator, and the first two Harry Potter movies.
Memorable though his roles were, Richard Harris defined his life by his off-screen adventures. In this sweeping profile, BIOGRAPHY® captures the heady highs and tumultuous struggles of this dramatic icon.
