Movie Info

Though most often recognized in America for his mammoth contributions to Brit comedy, such as masterminding The Goon Show alongside Peter Sellers and Michael Bentine, Spike Milligan spent eighty-four years proving his brilliance in innumerable areas including children's verse, serious-minded poetry, environmental crusades, song composition and musical instrumentation, demonstrating that no creative territory was unconquerable for him. Milligan also struggled with a destructive side for decades, the victim of severe bipolar disorder that imparted - on various occasions - homicidal and suicidal tendencies. The documentary The Life and Legacy of Spike Milligan pays unbridled tribute to Milligan's genius with a two-hour plus overview of his plethora of contributions to entertainment and the arts and his emotional struggles. Milligan's contemporaries, protégés, and family members appear on-camera, to discuss the man's legacy - among them, Eddie Izzard, Michael Palin, Joanna Lumley, and Eric Sykes. In addition, this documentary features never-before-seen clips from Milligan's home movies.
