Phyllis Diller Documentary.

As I noted in my post regarding Mayan Renaissance, I am a fan of documentaries and part of what I value about the Denver Film Center and the Starz Denver Film Festival. In reflecting on the death of Phyllis Diller I remembered a documentary about her that screened at the Film Festival in 2005. It was terrific and an Official Selection of the 28th Starz Denver International Film Festival. It chronicles Diller's final comedy stand up performance.

We follow her as she is preparing for the show, we see the wigs and the clothes. There are interviews with a host of other comedians. Funny and touching and insightful.

I'm thinking I need to see it again.
