Movie Info

An outsider with attitude, Show Me The Picture: The Story of Jim Marshall chronicles the infamous photographer's life behind and outside the camera. A child of immigrants and a life battling inner demons, Jim fought his way to become one of the most trusted mavericks behind a lens throughout 60's history. A passion for music led him to capture some of the most iconic figures in music history from Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, to the infamous image of Jimi Hendrix burning his guitar. It was his abrasive but honest approach to his subjects combined with incredible skill to build trust that expanded his portfolio beyond celebrities, documenting history across the ages.

  • "Show Me the Picture" rarely takes us inside the thrill (or challenge) of what Marshall experienced as a photographer, or parses his technique, or explores why he was drawn to the rock scene in the first place.

  • ...a wild look at one of the unsung heroes of rock 'n' roll: they played it, and he memorialized it.

  • As with most great artists the picture is not a simple one. Meaning you cannot possibly take everything in with one viewing. It takes multiple looks at it to really understand what Jim Marshall was all about.
