Known as the "King of Cool," McQueen will forever be known in cinematic lore by his rugged good looks, bad-boy persona, and searing charisma. He grew from a small-town thug to become the highest paid and most sought-after actor of his generation. McQueen's credits include "The Sand Pebbles" (for which he was nominated for an Academy Award), "The Thomas Crown Affair," "The Getaway," "Papillon," "The Magnificent Seven," and "The Towering "Inferno."
Though he released dozens of albums throughout his 30 year career, Townes never achieved widespread popularity (though Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard had a #1 country hit with his song "Pancho & Lefty," and Emmylou Harris and Lyle Lovett continue to play his songs live). Yet Townes, whose lyrics resonate with such sad beauty, has, in the years since his death in 1997, become widely respected as one of the greatest American musicians of his, or any, generation. Be Here To Love Me shows us why, and shows us the man at the center of the myth.
Haunting and lyrical, Be Here To Love Me combines emotional interviews with friends and family with never seen footage of Townes Van Zandt, from rare performance and interview footage to intimate portraits shot in Van Zandt’s own home throughout the years. It also includes appearances by many famous musicians, including Willie Nelson, Lyle Lovett, Kris Kristofferson, Steve Earle, and Emmylou Harris.
