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 for effort,but it's low budget is showing a little too much.
23 May 2014 | by SmileysWorldSee all my reviews

I want to like any film about Hank Williams,because I am a big fan of the man's music.This fanship comes from my mother,who was a fan as a young girl when he was still alive.Any film or project about the man compels me to watch.Sometimes they impress,sometimes they do not.The Last Ride,I regret to say,does not.While,it has some fine,talented people presenting the story,it is all too obvious that the film was cheaply made.I'm not against low budgeted films because some fine ones have been made,but one of the things that makes a cheaply made film a good film,in my opinion,is the fact it doesn't look cheaply made,and regrettably,this one does.I will give it an A for effort,but will not likely make any effort to see it again.
