Plot

As the film opens on an Oklahoma farm during the depression, two simultaneous visitors literally hit the Wagoneer home: a ruinous dust storm and a convertible crazily driven by Red, the missus' brother. A roguish country-western musician, he has just been invited to audition for the Grand Ole Opry, his chance of a lifetime to become a success. However, this is way back in Nashville, Red clearly drives terribly, and he's broke and sick with tuberculosis to boot. Whit, 14, seeing his own chance of a lifetime to avoid "growing up to be a cotton picker all my life," begs Ma to let him go with Uncle Red as driver and protege. Thus begins a picaresque journey both hilarious and poignant.
 

Comments

Honkytonk Man Has A Few Moments But Not Enough Of Them!, 19 October 1999 Author: steve-214 (sfwr@earthlink.net) from Brea, Ca. USA Clint Eastwood plays Red Stovall, a country music singer trying to get to Nashville before he dies of Tuberculosis. Kyle Eastwood co-stars and does pretty well, but Honkytonk man fails on many levels.Kyle Eastwood's character Whit see a movie poster advertising a film made in 1934 but Eastwood drives a classic 1937 Lincoln throughout the entire film. A 1939 Chevy can also been seen in the one scene of a jail break. There are some brief cameos of country music legends including Marty Robbins who died before the picture was released. Guitar,Singer Songwriter Merle Travis is seen as one of the Texas Playboys.
