Jerry Garcia Week 2011 Day 3: The Movie That Changed Jerry’s Life


Back in 1995, the year of Jerry’s passing, AMC ran a series titled THE MOVIE THAT CHANGED MY LIFE. Garcia was interviewed for this series and the movie he chose to discuss was ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN. Yes, you heard me right.

It is so heartwarming and comforting to see Jerry discussing this film at this late stage in his life with such animation and exuberance. In his final years, Jerry’s onstage presence was seen as somewhat immobile. Gone was the rocking and rolling visage of a man uncontrollably and joyfully moved by his own music. This little 7:45 minute interview shows us another side of the later-years Garcia. With his beloved giggle and unabashed ebullience, watching Jerry in this interview brings a smile to my face.
