‘Paul Williams Still Alive’ Out In Select Theaters
Did you think songwriter Paul Williams was dead? So did the guy who ended up making a documentary about him. Williams wrote songs like “Evergreen,” “Rainbow Connection,” “Old Fashioned Love Song” and “We’ve Only Just Begun.” He used to show up on talk shows and variety shows in the ‘70s and ‘80s, but admits he got caught up in the fame game, along with drugs and alcohol.
