A documentary about country music legend Glen Campbell will kick off the 23rd annual Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival at the Arlington Hotel and Spa, running from Oct. 10 to 19. The film, titled “Glen Campbell…I’ll Be Me” and produced by James Keach and Trevor Albert, showcases Campbell’s life and Goodbye Tour, his last one in light of a 2011 Alzheimer’s diagnosis.

Many know Campbell for the four country and pop Grammys he won in 1967. He released more than 70 albums between 1962 and 2004, 12 of which qualified as RIAA Gold albums, 4 as platinum, and 1 as double-platinum – “Wichita Lineman” (1968). Campbell sold more than 45 million records over the course of his career, and he played Ranger La Boeuf in the original “True Grit” (1969).

The film features interviews with Bruce Springsteen, Bill Clinton, The Edge, Paul McCartney, Jay Leno, Vince Gill, Steve Martin and Taylor Swift, according to a press release. The release also states that Keach and Albert, along with members of Campbell’s family – his wife Kim and children Ashley, Cal and Shannon – will answer questions after the screening. The bands Billstown and the Drew Henderson Band, both of which include Campbell family members, will play the after party.

The Hot Springs showing, however, is not the state premiere. The Arkansas Motion Picture Institute, launched by the Little Rock Film Festival in September 2012, hosted a preview showing of the film at the Ron Robinson Theater on July 10.

  • Review: 'Memphis' at The Rep

    You can’t help but feel the heat of summertime Memphis in 1958 as the forbidden love story of white radio DJ Huey Calhoun (Brent DiRoma) and black club singer Felicia Farrell (Jasmin Richardson) unfolds before you on the stage of the Arkansas Repertory Theater. It’s one of the hottest, loudest musicals I’ve ever seen at The Rep, and perhaps the most uplifting since “Les Mis” came to Main Street in 2008.
