Fair warning: There’ve been some hints that the documentary is chipping away at Ross’s glam exterior but it’s also that those negative aspects have been played to generate interest for the film. First, CNN has pointed out that the true drama behind the scenes takes place thanks to Ross and his producers. “What is lurking under the top layer of Ross his jolly facade? In the end, likely nothing that could get the beloved artist’s contract canceled,” the outlet wrote. “The real microscope is on Annette and Walter Kowalski, the painter’s long-time business partners who co-founded Bob Ross Inc. and have been involved in extensive legal battles against Ross’ estate and his family over the rights to the artist’s image.”

In the meantime, Happy Accidents director Joshua Rofe has given Ross his character a glowing evaluation in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, “He was more lively offscreen than his character was. He appeared to truly enjoy being involved with life in a manner that was also infused with more energy than what you’d get in the show. He was just a person who was a lover of life and wanted to spend time with people.”
