This compelling documentary series unlocks the hidden secrets, psychological flaws and events that result in the tragic deaths of famed notorious and the iconic. Every episode maps out the final 24 hours of a different famous person's life. The series weaves the star's back-story with events from their last day, which lays bare the threads of fate that led inextricably from childhood to the moment of death. These are no ordinary biographies. They're psychological detective stories attempting to uncover the mystery of why the celebrity died. July 2, 1971. Jim Morrison is one of the most famous rock singers in the world. He's also the ultimate sex symbol, but Morrison is at war with his own dark demons. In 24 hours his darkness will consume him and he'll be dead. Using archive footage, dramatic reenactment and interviews with his closest companions, we detail the last hours of Morrison's life and the gripping events that led to his tragic death in Paris.

4.0 out of 5 stars 48 Fascinating Minutes Of Jim Morrison's Final Hours October 22, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have been a Doors and Jim Morrison fan since buying their first great album, The Doors in 1967. I own all their records, cd's, dvd's, posters and dozens of Doors and Jim Morrison books, so I do know all the stories about Jim Morrison's death. I will always remember July 3, 1971, because my mother broke the news of Jim Morrison's death to me, by saying, "That guy you have all over your closet door is dead." I was actually shocked, as anyone who followed the Doors, knew that Jim Morrison's drug of choice was alcohol. Unfortunately for Jim, his girlfriend Pamela Courson's drug of choice was heroin. Whether Jim Morrison accidentally snorted heroin thinking it was cocaine, or just snorted it to get high with Pam, as the film depicts, makes no difference, as Jim was quite ill long before this final heroin death.

I thought this short 48 minute film would be re-enactments by unknown actors of Jim's last hours and wouldn't offer anything interesting or new, as I have read everything about Jim's death, but I was pleasantly surprised! The 48 minutes is well spent with great photos, great film clips, accurate re-enactments and great commentaries and stories from a few key people that knew Jim Morrison. Some of the great people who tell the story of Jim Morrison's last hours are: JAMES RIORDAN-author of Break On Through; VINCE TREANOR-The Doors Road Manager; PAMELA DES BARRES-Former Rock Groupie; BEN FONG-TORRES-Former Editor of The Rolling Stone; STEVE HARRIS-Former Vice President of Elektra Records; TANDY MARTIN-Jim's School Friend; TONY FUCHES-Jim's Bodyguard and drinking buddy; ALAIN RAISSON-First Firefighter on the death scene before the French medics arrived, and others. These people tell absolutely great stories of Jim's life back then, which help put together the end of his life in Paris.

5.0 out of 5 stars I just watched this on Current TV February 17, 2013
Format:DVD
What a well done, gripping account of the last 24 hours of Jim Morrison's life. I just wished it ended differently:(. I watched most of the series and I give them all 5 stars w/ the exception of Sid Vicious, that 1 was just sickening to watch. I'm surprised this hasn't been picked up on Investigtion Discovery. I told a few friends about the series and none of them get Current TV. Truly a brilliant sad portrayal told w/ compassion about some beloved idols who had sadly dark sides and addictions.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good - for a low-budget documentary. December 22, 2013
By Scott M
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I really like the blips of interviews and comments by people connected with the doors.
I think this documentary Mostly got it right. - It says 'Final 24' - but reviews years leading up to Morrison's death.

What I don't like - is the images of like a 1980's or 90's jeep upside-down - while they talk about an accident in the late 1940's. And co9mmentary with people who had NOTHING to do with those times - and only have their Options to offer.
Of course no one can truly act like Morrison.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is the End July 4, 2014
Format:DVD
I feel I have a decent understanding of Morrison. High IQ, sensitive, inquisitive, creative, the heart of a poet, and the soul of a clown. He just could not control his appetites. Manzarek likes to think of the Doors as a group about acid, weed and fun. However, Morrison, in the end, was much about whiskey, coke and heroin. He was a stone cold alcoholic and coupled with Pam "Cinnamon Girl" Courson he did not have much of a chance. She was a junkie. All of us Doors' fans hated the way it ended for Morrison but it was inevitable. Some intelligent rockers, like Neil Young, got thru the 60s and 70s, it was not to be for James Douglas Morrison. I think he could have been a decent poet. Well, if he had to go, then why not in a mystery. We're still talking about him and their are plenty of Morrison fans, old and new. May he RIP.

how did Jim Morrison really die?
B. Buckley, you're doing a bang-up job of channeling P. Kennealy:
"He had about 100 IQ points over her and found her a dippy bore?????"

Golly, that must be why he returned to her continually despite his frequent flings with other women (including but not limited to Ms. Kennealy and... Read More
