Synopsis by Elizabeth Smith
During the Roaring Twenties, many of the most popular tunes being sung in America were written by one highly talented man. George Gershwin was a gifted composer who managed to accomplish many things before dying at the young age of 38. Gershwin knew how to combine the best of both classical music and jazz in many of his tunes. Most Americans, like many other citizens of the world, continue to enjoy and be impressed by his tunes "Funny Face," "Rhapsody in Blue" and "Porgy and Bess." Family members, friends and various celebrities are interviewed in this documentary tribute to this man's singular genius.
