George Harrison biopic omits affair with band mate’s wife
London: The new major biopic on the late Beatles star George Harrison has omitted details of his affair with band mate Ringo Starr’s then wife Maureen Cox, raising eyebrows among rock historians.
Directed by Martin Scorsese, the forthcoming film, ‘Living In The Material World’, sees widow Olivia acknowledge Harrison’s challenging attitude to the opposite sex and Eric Clapton discuss running off with George’s first wife Patti Boyd.
But there is no reference to his well-documented affair with band mate Ringo Starr’s then wife Cox, the Daily Express reported.
The documentary will premiere in the U.K. in the Beatle’s native Liverpool on 2 October.
