For Jim Reeves' fans
2 November 2012 | by See all my reviews

Jim Reeves still has plenty of fans out on the country music ranges, although they are nowhere as numerous or vociferous as they were right up to the close of the 20th century. For a singer who died on 31 July 1964 (in a plane crash), Jim had a remarkable after-death career, unmatched by any other country music artist. As "Kimberley Jim" is the only movie Reeves ever made, it would rank as must viewing, no matter how bad or indifferent it was. But as it happens, it's quite a pleasant film and it ranks as an excellent vehicle for his songs -- and that's the main purpose in watching it anyway! The songs were composed by Taffy Kikillus, Gilbert Gibson, Herbert Friedman, Anton de Waal, Nico Carstens, Brian Buggy, Chris du Toit, and Bill Walker (who was also the music director, conductor and arranger). Herbert Friedman is credited as "music adviser".
