Here's the trailer for Denny Tedesco's 2008 documentary on the famed Hollywood session musicians dubbed The Wrecking Crew, screening on Saturday night at the Saban Theatre. The Grammy-eve screening is billed as honoring six-time Grammy winner Hal Blaine and a Q-A with musicians of the era will follow the movie. The only one they mention is Nancy Sinatra. A portion of the proceeds are earmarked for the International Documentary Foundation. The film has been seen at film festivals and occasional screenings, but has not yet been released commercially.

Wrecking Crew players provided the music on a stunning number of hit records in the 1960s. There's so much music in the film itself it's said to have the longest cue sheet of any movie ever. Brian Wilson, Nancy Sinatra, Cher, Glen Campbell, Dick Clark and others talk in the trailer.
