Son reveals all in Howard Morrison bio
The whanau of Sir Howard Morison want his story on the silver screen.
Eleven years after entertainment icon's death, son Howie Morrison Jnr has told that story in a new book How Great Thou Art: Sir Howard Morrison – The Untold Truth.
That truth includes behind the scenes dramas, tensions with opera singer Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, and anger in the whānau about his on the road affairs.
He says the good outweighs the bad and would make a great movie.
"How about acknowledge and tribute to one of New Zealand's biggest icons who was not only giving on the stage but he gave a lot of his time off the stage as well to different charities – the Ride for Life cost him an operation on his all bladder but how was a giving person to all kiwis," Morrison says.
