Martin Scorsese's George Harrison Documentary: First Look (Video)

The quiet Beatle and the “Taxi Driver” director come together in new HBO project

Former Beatle George Harrison gets the Scorsese treatment on Oct. 5, when Martin Scorsese's documentary "Living in the Material World" hits HBO for a two-night premiere (the 3 1/2-hour presentation will wrap up on Oct. 6).

In the documentary, Scorsese — who, in recent years, has turned his directorial talents toward documenting such musical talents as Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones — will tell Harrison's story via archival footage and interviews with such close Harrison associates as Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney and Tom Petty.

Check out what happens when the "Taxi Driver" director takes on the quiet Beatle in this trailer from "Living in the Material World."
