He won Grammys and an Academy Award; wrote many #1 songs from Barbara Streisand\'s \"Evergreen\" to the Carpenter\'s \"We\'ve Only Just Begun\" as well as Kermit the Frog\'s biggest hit, \"The Rainbow Connection\"; starred in a Brian DePalma movie; put out his own hit records and albums; was a guest on The Tonight Show fifty times; and is the president of ASCAP... and you might not have heard of him. In the 1970\'s, Paul Williams was the singer / actor / songwriter that emotional, alienated teenage boys all over the world wanted to be, a sex symbol before MTV, when sex symbols could be 5\"2 and sing songs about loneliness with the Muppets. One of those boys was Steve Kessler, a chubby kid from Queens. Thirty years later, Kessler discovered something amazing: Paul Williams didn\'t die. And no one had ever tried to make a documentary about him. A wistful musical journey that will re-introduce a new generation to Williams\' soulful classics, Paul Williams: Still Alive is the charmingly self-narrated story of Stephen Kessler\'s lifelong obsession with the former superstar-and what happens when the nostalgic filmmaker finally catches up with him.
