Desperately Seeking Paul Mccartney

Overview

More than forty years after musical superstar Paul McCartney proposed marriage to her on live television, onetime ABC reporter Ruth Anson sets out to see if the famed former Beatle is willing to make good on his offer, only to find her journey complicated by an opportunistic filmmaker seeking to cash-in on the current reality craze.

Overview

More than forty years after musical superstar Paul McCartney proposed marriage to her on live television, onetime ABC reporter Ruth Anson sets out to see if the famed former Beatle is willing to make good on his offer, only to find her journey complicated by an opportunistic filmmaker seeking to cash-in on the current reality craze. Anson was covering the "teen beat" for ABC news when, in August of 1965, she sat down for a brief interview The Beatles. At one point in the interview, Anson asked McCartney whether he had any plans for marriage. Much to her surprise, the teen idol responded by stating, "No, unless you'll marry me now." At the time Anson simply laughed the proposal off; decades later, she's determined to bring "closure" to the situation by tracking McCartney down and asking whether he was serious. Mark Cushman is a filmmaker in search of his breakthrough project, and he believes that by turning Anson's adventure into a documentary he'll quickly move on to bigger and better things. Over the course of the production, however, Cushman quickly begins to realize that his "serious documentary" simply won't be that marketable. The Solution: take a tip from reality television, and use a bit of creative editing in order to manipulate the project into something slightly more entertaining. Unfortunately for Anson, that means creating a film that could do serious harm to her stand-up reputation.
