In Canada's history, there are few people who signified the nation's modern confidence in its arts more than Gordon Lightfoot. This singer-songwriter's singular talent in music changed the world's opinion of Canada's culture with his tremendous variety of songs that both celebrated the nation and touched its soul. Sparing nothing about Lightfoot's personal weaknesses and failures as well as his triumphs, this film covers Lightfoot's career from his own words and his closest associates with recordings of his greatest hits.

Did You Know?


When Murray McLachlan is describing the apartment building in Toronto on Alexander Street, where Gord was living at the time, he said the apartment building was round like the old Decca Records building in L.A. The round building in L.A. is actually The Capitol Records building on Vine Street in Hollywood. See more »

User Reviews

Interesting background info his musical path.
19 January 2021 | by colonel-13070See all my reviews

Interesting background information on how we started and how we got where he ended up. Different people then and now adding commentary and opinions to him. The only one that was really disappointing to see with Alec Baldwin. He has no business talking about anything, the guy has done nothing but insult people for four years, and many of those are watching these videos. Would've gotten higher rating if it wasn't for him.
