Trivia

Charles Carr, the Auburn freshman who was driving when Williams died, passed away in July 2013 at the age of 79, in Montgomery, Alabama. Carr was hired on December 30, 1952, to drive Williams in his 1952 powder blue Cadillac from Montgomery to shows in Charleston, West Virginia, and Canton, Ohio. There was snow most of the way. On New Year's Eve, in the afternoon, Williams received word that a flight he had planned to take him to the job in Charleston was cancelled, due to snow. They checked into a Knoxville hotel, where hotel porters later had to carry Williams, under the influence of two shots of morphine, to the backseat of the car when it was decided to drive to Canton. The next morning, in Oak Hill, West Virginia, Carr found Williams dead, lying in the same position where the porters had placed him. Carr remained in Montgomery, working in investment and real estate until he retired. See more »

A movie about the last days of Hank Williams. Acting is OK but driving scenes are fake and movie is very flat throughout. I say C+
1 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"If he don't make it to the show, you don't get paid." Silas (James) is a young mechanic who is looking to make a few extra dollars so he decides to take on a job driving a man named Mr. Wells (Thomas) to a New Year's eve show in West Virginia. The only rules are to get him there in time and not let him drink to much. Neither seems to be an easy task. This is a hard movie to review. The movie is OK, but would be better as a play. The scenes when they are in the car look so fake and is obviously on a sound-stage that its almost distracting. I'm not sure if the William's family was involved in this but the whole movie plays without anyone ever calling him Hank. The soundtrack is OK, and acting could have been worse but the movie just seemed flat all the way through. Overall, a movie that would have been better served as a play. I give it a C+.
