Storyline

The marriage of television director Ted Glover and television producer A.G. Bannister has gone on the rocks because she has permitted her career to take precedence over romance. The horror of it all! Complications also arise because of a romance between Ted's agent, Steve Laughlin and a performer, Billy-Joe Henley, with a touring Hootenanny group. The resolvement comes when A.G. realizes that love is more important than a career - dang tootin' it was in a Sam Katzman movie in the 60's - but not before the likes of guest stars The Brothers Four, Sheb Wooley, Johnny Cash, The Gateway Trio, Judy Henske, George Hamilton IV, Joe & Eddie, Cathie Taylor and (Bob's boy) Chris Crosby work up a sweatin' storm trying to create a craze for "Hootenanny".

Perfect!
21 June 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This was a great movie! The guys wear suits/ties, and, when everyone was at the beach in their swimming suits, along comes this guy in full dress with his sweater on! The camera work was great too, lots of weird low-angle and high-angle face shots like Hitchcock would do. The music and "dancing" was really great. A real slice of the time we were in limbo, after too much Presley and before the Fab Four. Check this one out and yell a lot at it, it's fun! And don't take these other reviews too seriously, they just like reading what they wrote. That's All Folks
