This is a bitter-sweet look into the aging life of a Broadway Legend. I'm glad I watched it. Parts of it resonated with me, in my aging life. The difference is that I'm not expecting the end to be going into "nothing", I have the hope ... of his glorious inheritance". I give the documentary a 7 out of 10, but the candour a 10 out 10. I watched this on Netflix.
