    He was the "Original" Canadian Idol, he helped David Foster get his foot in the door and together they launched the Career of Michael Buble. He was the First Canadian Act to do American Bandstand and he also did Ed Sullivan as well. He was so far apart from the "Other" Teen Idols of that time becuase he "Wrote" what he sang. "My Way" is next to "Yesterday" by The Beatles the most covered song in Music. He also did the Theme to The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson so Canadian Culture was part of US Culture from 1962-1992. Then he also holds the distinction of having along with Smokey Robinson & The Isley Brothers the distinction of having Hits in every single decade since the 1950's which was the beginning of Rock & Roll.

    Wonderful portrait of a young, talented and Canadian singer-songwriter. Like The Beatles, he would get better as he got older.

    LandLady and I just watched this. I found it wonderful that he found the drive to compel himself to achieve his dream. LandLady just screamed like she was a teenager again~!

    You can compare his popularity with Justin Bieber's but Paul Anka was a lot more articulate and erudite at a younger age. Jason Daniel Baker

    Love this film. The Biebs has some work to do to catch up to Paul.
