Jerry – The Movie

A feature length documentary on Jerry Garcia is now being prepped for a spring 2012 release. Malcolm Leo will direct the film, which will draw on a three hour interview Leo conducted with Garcia in 1987. Leo’s earlier works include This Is Elvis, The Beach Boys – An American Band, Crosby, Stills & Nash: Long Time Comin’ and Rolling Stone Presents Twenty Years of Rock & Roll. The filmmakers indicate that they have secured the rights to make the film, which “will blend an unprecedented amount of never before seen [sic] performances, documentary footage and rare home movies.” Last summer Leo and partner John Hartmann presented a clip aired by the San Francisco Giants for Jerry Garcia Day. Additional information on the production can be found at

Please explain the [sic] notation. Are the editors taking a firm stand that “never before seen” should by hyphenated? Or do they simply disagree with using “never before seen” instead of “unseen?”

Ultimately, Far Out, Man! Yeah, cool

I think they are saying that footage is sic, bro!

the grammar on this site is often atrocious so for the editors to now take a stand by using [sic] is more than mildly amusing

They either think it should say “never seen before” or think the word should be “scene”.

I hope this focuses on his talent and body of work not his personal life. Also like Grateful Dawg I hope that any live footage they show of performance they actually allow the entire song to play.

Like Dunwoody, I wondered about the [sic]. It must be the hyphens.

Hold the phone! At the site I find the phrase: “an unprecedented amount of never before scene performances” So the [sic] was for the incorrect “scene” which actually got corrected after the [sic] was introduced. Once an editor, always an editor. :/
