Affable and hugely entertaining.
A fitting epitaph for a giant few people outside the industry knew but whose work everybody heard.
As a probing look at a really nice-guy genius in the studio world, it succeeds admirably.
Deserves credit, not only for choosing a wonderful and deserving subject for a film, but for doing him proud.
A loving portrait of 50 years of pop music and a man who by all accounts was a musical genius.
A must see for any fan of popular music from the latter half of the 20th century.
The film's high points are to be found in tremendous archival footage.
This highly enjoyable documentary makes sure that Dowd's contribution to the music business will not be forgotten.
If nothing else, you'll earn a new appreciation for the way music is produced.
Mark Moormann's documentary tends to the worshipful, but Dowd, a charmer onscreen, was by all accounts just as appealing in real life, a gentleman and a scholar who loved music, loved musicians and loved making them sound their best.
The film is full of artists' stories and testimonials from both the old and new schools of the music industry. But it is the delightfully charming Dowd that makes the movie. He's a hoot, and a legendary one at that.
great subject - decent movie
