This is not actually masterpiece,but still a rare short movie. only movie where we see Jimmie Rodgers alive.Jimmie was railroad man himself and movie is filmed in "Railroad Eating House". Jimmie Rodgers - the father of country music,Americans blue yodeler, the singing brakeman.He sang three songs and he got one cup of coffee for this.first song "Waiting For A Train"Jimmie actually worked a short brakeman,In 1911, he went to work as a brakeman but had to cut his railroading career short because of contracting consumption in 1924.Second song is "Daddy And Home"One old lady ask for Jimmie do you miss your old dad?Jimmie:yes of course.His Fathers Name was Aaron and the last song is Blue Yodel - his landmark.Lucky old ladies,they saw Jimmie alive and live what a treasure day. Jimmie wears in this movie his work shirt,a bandanna,and a railroad hat.This is movie is old yes,but we should never who was Jimmie Rodgers,without him there would be no Hank Williams, Johnny Cash,Chuck Berry,Beatles,Elvis Presley.he was a true king of music.he died 26 May 1933 - he was 35 years old only.a arrant fan of Jimmie.Lembit.
