DAVID BOWIE: CRACKED ACTOR

On this date in 1975 BBC Omnibus aired "Cracked Actor", an amazing documentary that follows David Bowie on his 1974 US tour.  Bowie is in a pretty fragile place psychologically in this doc, and he was also at the height of his legendary cocaine addiction, so what you see is a combination of electrifying concert footage (this is the ONLY place to see film from this tour) and revealing interviews.

Apologies for the multi-part post, but it's worth watching.
