Synopsis by Nathan Southern
Produced in 1979 by Sandler Institutional Films and aired on television in 1981, the documentary special Is Everybody Happy But Me? finds character actor Roscoe Lee Browne (Soap) leading an exploration of happiness, one of the most cherished but elusive of all human emotions. The program opens with a series of insights from people in various walks of life offering candid but very different answers about what happiness means to them - from a Parisian fashion model who defines happiness as "lunch at Maxim's," to the actress Marsha Mason (Only When I Laugh, who found happiness through the teachings of the Indian swami Baba Muktunanda. The program then attempts to cut through the hype promulgated by popular self-help books by teaching the audience proven and assured methods for finding inner peace-of-mind.
