Critic Reviews for Johnny Mercer: The Dream's On Me

All Critics (2)

The clips don't just celebrate the music, they illustrate his gift for the language of the lyric and telling stories through song.

A surplus of musical treasures, though we never quite figure out who the man really was.

Audience Reviews for Johnny Mercer: The Dream's On Me

While not a name many instantly recognize, Mercer wrote or co-wrote so many standards used in many films. A nice documentary that goes from birth of the legendary musical genius from the American south. Eastwood makes a brief appearance in the beginning of the film, but this is not his to act in at all. It is pure documentary that he obviously approved of and lent his name to. Highly recommended for musicology students, music history buffs and film buffs alike if they ever heard his music in soundtracks. Moon River, of course, in Breakfast at Tiffeny's is one of the best known of the modern era.
