Biopic about the musical career and life of American singer-songwriter John Denver.
Good movie but full of more TV movie anachronisms
I enjoyed this movie, but once again, history and chronology were ignored. Example – if you believe this movie, the song Calypso came out after the movie ‘Oh God!’ Actually, Calypso was a hit in the fall of 1975, ‘Oh God!’ was released in 1977. If you believe this movie, Annie’s Song, a top ten hit from 1974 came out post 1976.
The movie also skips from 1972 straight to 1976 which omits John Denver ‘s peak years as a performer and hit maker.
Why don’t these TV Movie makers do any real research? Because they need to get the movie out first, accuracy is secondary.
Unfortunately, TV movies are now no different than tabloid magazines.
Worth watching but don’t rely on it for chronological accuracy
This is a very good movie!
