Hilarious and lovable this is the real bumpkin deal from the mid 60s....and the DVD I have here in Australia is just perfect, folks! LAS VEGAS HILLBILLIES is exactly the type of fun the movie industry forgot how to make (the big ol' cinemas were demolished and the drive ins went broke after video came in). The color is fantastic and the extras look like the real Tennessee dentists and supermarket managers and real estate agents who financed this film. No doubt a big fat money spinner in drive ins and lovely old small town cinemas (like the ones we see re created in Back To the Future streetscapes) LAS VEGAS HILLBILLIES hails from the days when someone with a few local business contacts (like Arch Hall's dad) could make a movie, show it in a few states (and in a few States) and make some money back....and there was still a few lovable Hollywood has beens willing to appear in spangled caftans to earn a few bucks to fend off the sheriff from their rented fibro home in Malibu. The reason why this was made and the way it was made is as honest on the screen as the story here. Just love it and show it to your friends. I did and they came back for more. This is Pettycoat Junction Big Time. Maybe we here in Oz still have a sense of humor. You should too. If all else fails, shock some 21st Century teenagers with it. ha-ha.
