A nostalgic jewel for classic country music lovers.
13 September 2002 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

This country music gem falls into the genre of what can be dubbed "pioneering" country music, and stars one of the great pioneers, Roy Acuff.

Fans would never think of Acuff as an actor, that is, unless they have seen "Oh, My Darling Clementine." His portrayal of the singing sheriff is a rare adventure in nostalgia and was made at a time when country music was hard to sell north of the Mason-Dixon line. But, if you're a country music fan now, and interested in it's history, you must see this movie.

Although this is not a historical document, it does reflect the period in which it was made. The younger Acuff...well, he was 40 years old when the film was made...rendition of the title song will start your hands to clappin' and your feet to tappin.'

The movie is not readily available in VHS or DVD. At least, I haven't been able to find it. But keep searching, sooner or later you're bound to find it.
