Advance Viewer Says David Gest Doc About Michael Jackson is ‘Pretty Good’
By Richard Horgan on June 2, 2011

After originally hinting at a 2010 release for the feature documentary The Real Michael Jackson, David Gest dropped off the radar with his project. But just before Memorial Day, he resurfaced on the Universal Studio lot to host a May 26th sneak preview for family members and celebs like Smokey Robinson and Angie man pieceinson.

Roger Friedman of Showbiz 411 has the details, along with the text of the email invite. That message contains a great endorsement for the film from Motown legend Lamont Dozier, which Friedman seconds to a certain extent via his own Deep Glove:

    The source I spoke to says the documentary is pretty good mainly because it includes lots of rare footage of Michael and the Jacksons. How Gest got the rights to the footage, I don’t know. He does have plans to release the doc in the UK.

Gest says he is partnered on the distribution front with Universal Pictures UK and BBC Worldwide.* Despite Gest’s questionable reputation, it will be hard for many to resist this new “rare footage” offering.

*Correction – 06/03/11: Contrary to hints dropped in Gest’s May 26th screening invite, BBC Worldwide has notified us that they will not be distributing the documentary.
