Telling ‘Bee Gees’ Story Proved ‘Cathartic’ for Barry Gibb, Director Frank Marshall Says

“He obviously misses his brothers immensely, he’s the oldest. But he also wants to celebrate the legacy,” says Frank Marshall, director of “The Bee Gees: How Can You Mend a Broken Heart “

Frank Marshall, director of HBO Max’s new documentary “The Bee Gees: How Can You Mend a Broken Heart,’ believes one way for Barry Gibb to mend his own broken heart was getting the chance to tell the inside story of the other two Bee Gees, his late younger twin brothers, Robin and Maurice Gibb.

“You know he obviously misses his brothers immensely, he’s the oldest,” Marshall told TheWrap, adding that the surviving Gibb brother’s participation seemed to be cathartic for the British singer. “He also wants to celebrate the legacy.  I think he wants people to know the story.  A lot of people think they just did ‘Saturday Night Fever.’ “
