Jerry Lee Lewis has partnered with Mick Jagger, Victoria Pearman, Steve Bing, and Peter Afterman to produce a career-spanning documentary film. Directed by T-Bone Burnett and Callie Khouri. We expect you'll be hearing much more about the project in the coming months.

Because so much of the Jerry's story involves YOU, the fans, we want you to be involved. We're looking for submissions of:

* Photos / home movies of Jerry Lee Lewis in any stage of his life.

Important Notes:

Please DO NOT send any photos or videos initially, please only send us a short note telling us what you have available including show date, and a general description (example: "9/3/73, Jerry Lee Lewis in Germany, shot on Super 8 sound film").

-We must know what years the material was shot, what format it was shot in, and what format it is currently in. (i.e. super 8, regular 8mm, 16mm, VHS, mini DVD, etc.)


Please let us know if this footage is a dub, original, edited, or a camera original. Please let us know if you are the sole rights holder for the material.

If the materials are photos, please let us know if they are photo prints, slides, etc.

Please let us know if you're capable of digitizing and uploading the material. If we use the material in the final film we will pay you a licensing fee and give you credit.


-Send your photo and video/film listings to us at: jerryleelewisdoc@gmail.com and we’ll be in touch if we’d like to see your photos or footage. Just to reiterate: Please do not send any attachments, our server will automatically reject anything but an email. Thank you, and stay in touch!

That is really great news, but let's hope they try to find some Professionally videotaped apperances , like Fort Worth Texas 1967 (Green, Green Gras of Home), or the roumered Birmingham TV taped show at 18.June 1974 at Joe Namath's in Birmingham, AL.
And not to forget the Joey Bishop Show in June 1968 where he sings his new country hit Another Place, Another Time, and reciting from Catch My Soul. That would be the breaking point for Jerry's comeback to the charts.

RE “New Jerry Lee Lewis career-spanning documentary film”
It is NOT a Jerry Lee film -full stop
“What was the purpose of the meeting? A source close to Lewis tells Rolling Stone that the duo gathered for a “planning session” for an upcoming biopic on Sun founder Sam Phillips. Jagger is currently producing a Paramount Pictures film based on Peter Guralnick’s excellent 2014 book Sam Phillips: The Man Who Invented Rock ‘N’ Roll, which Leonardo DiCaprio has signed on to star in. (Deadline reported in 2016 that DiCaprio will play Phillips, though there has been no update on his involvement since.)”

That could be two different projects though.

Super great news. I am one of the biggest collectors of 1950s and 1960s photos. And i hope they include some unseen published.

The Jerry Lee Lewis documentary will be released along with the new album in the fall of this year.
