Ladies and Gentlemen… Mr. Leonard Cohen: The Poet-Musician Featured in a 1965 Documentary

Look what the vintage video gods have delivered today. Filmed in 1965, the black and white documentary Ladies and Gentlemen… Mr. Leonard Cohen introduces viewers to a young Leonard Cohen. Then only 30 years old (and looking a little like Dustin Hoffman), Cohen had already established himself as a poet and novelist. But his legendary career as a singer-songwriter was just barely getting underway. The 44 minute documentary all takes place in his hometown of Montreal, the city to which Cohen continually returns “to renew his neurotic affiliations” with family and old friends.

Ladies and Gentlemen… Mr. Leonard Cohen appears in our collection of Free Movies Online, where you will also find Lian Lunson’s 2005 documentary, Leonard Cohen: I’m Your Man, a fascinating retrospective of Cohen’s life and work that features tribute performances by famous artists, including Beth Orton, Nick Cave, Martha and Rufus Wainwright, and U2.
