The story is about the outcast, Herbert Khaury’s rise to stardom as Tiny Tim. Either considered a freak or a genius Tiny Tim left no one unaffected.

The story about the outcast Herbert Khaury’s rise to stardom as Tiny Tim is the ultimate fairytale. And so is his downfall. Either considered a freak or a genius Tiny Tim left no one unaffected. Over 45 million Americans watched his wedding on the Carson Show, and his queer personality has been celebrated by the likes of Bob Dylan, and Johnny Depp. There were plans and hopes that Tiny Tim would be a lasting star, not only a novelty act. But one man ruined these plans. Tiny Tim. The exclusive access to Tiny Tim’s diaries, and interviews with his family and friends, tells the story about one of the oddest stars the world has ever seen. A life of struggle; against his skeptical parents, hostile neighbors, booing audiences, and his battle with mental illness. And girls! Girls! Girls! And a boy. But also Tiny’s fanatical belief: One day I will be famous!

“…the finest docs make you realize how much we needed a film on a particular subject. And that rule couldn’t apply more to Tiny Tim: King for a Day…”
– ROLLING STONE

“Von Sydow paints a compelling and very entertaining portrait of a showbiz original who found a niche, made his mark with an act famed for its shock value, and yet dabbled in most every musical style to come along after he broke big because he could and would try anything.”
