Levon Helm Documentary Coming

(CBS Local) In The Last Waltz, Martin Scorsese's 1978 film about The Band's infamous final concert, the focus is all on guitarist Robbie Robertson.

Now Band drummer/singer Levon Helm, who passed away earlier this year (and for the record, wasn't amused by Scorcese's little film), is getting his due credit with a documentary of his own, set to screen in theaters nationwide next year.

Titled Ain't in It for My Health: A Film About Levon Helm, the film chronicles Helm's late-2000s comeback of sorts, marked by his 2007 album Dirt Farmer, 2009 Grammy-winning album Electric Dirt and his Midnight Ramble concert series. Director Jacob Hatley shot the film over a period of more than two years, spending much time on location at Helm's Woodstock, N.Y. home. more on this story
