Trivia

Charles Carr, the Auburn freshman who actually was driving when Williams died, himself passed away in July 2013 at the age of 79 in Montgomery, AL. Carr was hired on Dec. 30, 1952, to drive Williams in his 1952 powder blue Cadillac from Montgomery to shows in Charleston, WV, and Canton, OH. There was snow most of the way. On New Year's Eve day in the afternoon, Williams received word that a flight he had planned to take him to the job in Charleston was canceled 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, WV, 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 »

Don't go for the music!
4 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Don't go for the music. This is not "Walk the Line", "Coal Miners Daughter" or "The Buddy Holley Story".

I saw this film at it's Montana premier here in Bozeman. I'm not sure whether to call this a "buddy/road trip movie" or a "coming of age" story. The fact that Hank Williams is the mystery passenger is almost irrelevant to the relationship that builds between the two main characters. One can be spoiled by the sophistication of today's blockbuster special effects. The simple rendering of snowfall and other "throw-back" effects reveals this as definitely a low budget movie. And even though both the writing and the acting are a bit stilted, there is an endearing sweetness about "The Last Ride" It is worth seeing.
