"Wonderful Cornpone"
9 May 2001 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

If you love 50s / 60s Americana like I do, then this DVD belongs on your shelf right next to those 'Route 66' docos, Jack Benny Shows and that 'Hullaballoo' disc. This is Country Music USA mid 60s style...complete with spangly suits, bouffant hairdos and toupees (thank you Hank Snow). But aside from the cornball trappings, there is neat country music here....before the Shania Twains of this world turned it into bland pop. Nashville greats abound....like Lefty Frizzell, Johnny Cash (joined by the Carter Family for some truly fine gospel), a young Waylon Jennings sans beard and cowboy hat singing one of his best numbers ("Anita You're Dreaming")and the late great Marty Robbins, in fine form, doing about 4 songs including "El Paso" and "Devil Woman". We also see him racing his beloved stock car on the track. Faron Young, Porter Wagoner, Connie Smith, Bill Anderson, Kitty Wells, the list goes on. About 38 numbers in all. Want more great Americana? The plot(?) has Doodles Weaver as Colonel Beedlebaum (his name when he was a member of the immortal Spike Jones Band) going to Nashville to find musical talent for a movie his boss is producing. He does a number of comedy routines reminiscent of his Spike Jones days. This is classic stuff. The Rhino DVD back cover quotes a running time of 88 mins but it actually goes for 102 mins. More good news...if you're quick, you can get a copy of the DVD from Amazon or Tower Records for under 10 bucks. If you have a sense of humor and nostalgia for an America past.....GET THIS DISC, Y'all!! Not recommended for film critics and trendies, but for anyone else, a religious experience.
