As Close As You Will Ever Come To Experiencing A Real Hank William Show.
What dreams and demons paced through Hank Williams' mind that cold New Year's Eve as he lay dying on the back seat of his northbound Cadillac? Were there glowing images of Audrey, his first wife, and of his son Hank left behind? Did his thoughts flicker to Billie Jean, his flashy new bride? And did he recall the adoring crowds and smiles as they roared his name?
Hank Williams: The Show He Never Gave brings these speculations to life. Using Williams' last ride as its dramatic context, the movie permits the haunted singer to play one final show, during which all his fears and passions - all his genius and small-mindedness - tumble out for us to see. Still, this is not a grim or preachy drama. Its dark and tragic elements are emotionally balanced by Williams' folksy charm, sly wit and classic songs.
