Review by Frances (posted on 9-May-2005)

This was a very good movie. My husband told me about this film and wanted to obtain a copy of it. It took a considerable amount of research and e-mails but I finally had a chance to purchase the movie. It was well worth the search.

If this is the movie I think it is, than I have to say it was one of the best films I have ever seen. The acting and directing was absolutely stunning, and it has left a lasting impression on my mind. I became a great fan of Huddie Ledbetter and own many of his recordings. I have been trying to get a copy of this film since I first saw it about 10 years ago. Please send me info on how to get a copy of the film if you are able. I am dying to show this movie to all my family and friends. sincerely Richard Goodman
