For the first half of the s, however, Harrison was trapped in that odd half-success of acclaim that lacks financial recompense. Legends is about a father and three sons whose fortunes wrathfully diverge around a woman.
In , he was stunned to realize that he made more money in the previous year than the president of General Motors.
Sean Connery and Jack Nicholson had their first meeting at a lunch with Harrison. He did coke with George Harrison. Werner Herzog was so determined to convince Harrison to write the script for Fitzcarraldo that during a hotel-room negotiation, he followed Harrison into the shower.
