Good made for TV movie
1 February 2003 | by (Woodbridge,VA) – See all my reviews

Final Shot: The Hank Gathers Story is great made for TV movie about star that stopped shining too soon. I didn't know a lot about Hank Gathers since hey day was when I was a child. But from seeing the movie I learned a few things. Victor Love gives a great performance in the lead role and if the movie is ever on TV it's worth checking out.
