The Magical Mystery of Musigny
Directed by Emmett Goodman, John Meyer
John tells of his enthusiasm for wine, especially for a particular Pinot Noir, and his attempts to convince his wife of the power of wine.
Beginning as a songwriter, JOHN MEYER wrote special comedy material for LILY TOMLIN, MADELINE KAHN and JOAN RIVERS
and can even list JUDY GARLAND as one of his interpreters. She performed his number “I’d Like to Hate Myself in the Morning” on the Tonight Show (1968). From this base, JOHN expanded his skills to Memoirs (Heartbreaker, 1983, Doubleday), musicals (The Betrayal of Nora Blake, Jermyn Street Theatre, London, 1998), film (Not for Publication, 1984) and TV (The Amazing Stories episode, Gershwin’s Trunk, 1986, produced by Steven Spielberg).
The Magical Mystery of Musigny marks his first experience as Writer/Director of an animated film. He is delighted to partner with animator Emmett Goodman in recounting his revelatory experience with this sublime example of Pinto Noir. Thank you.
