Aside from writing beautiful songs about Krishna – Something, My Sweet Lord and Here Comes the Sun – George Harrison donated the entire profits of his second solo album, Living In The Material World, to purchase the Bhaktivedanta Manor in England. George also gave $19,000 to produce Krishna: The Supreme Personality of Godhead in 1970. It is also notable that Time magazine, in a valedictory article on the musician, credited His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada as being George’s principle guru.

Now Harrison’s remarkable life will be captured on film. Martin Scorsese has signed a contract to direct the film. George’s wife, Olivia, is one of the producers; and Paul Mcartney and Ringo Starr will advise. Scorsese says: ‘George Harrison’s music and his search for spiritual meaning is a story that still resonates.’ Olivia Harrison adds, ‘It would have given George great joy to know that Martin Scorsese has agreed to tell his story.’ It seems the Quiet One just won’t keep quiet.
