A one minute and 50 second movie trailer for the Arkansas produced movie about the last days of Hank Williams starring Henry Thomas has been released. You may recall the trailer was up on the internet a month or so ago but was quickly taken down over some copyright issues.
Many thanks to ‘timlh’ for alerting me to this new development.
The movie was filmed in Arkansas primarily around Benton in February, March and April of last year. It stars Henry Thomas of ET fame, Jesse James, Kaley Cuoco, and Fred Thompson. It is directed by Harry Thomason of Mozark Productions. That company is famous for a number of successful TV and movie projects including ‘Designing Women’.
It looks like this version of ‘The Last Ride’ will be the first of a number of Hank Williams movie projects announced over the last couple of years to actually be released. There’s no word whether it will open in theatres or television, or when.
Finally, what so many of you have been waiting for, the actual moving pictures with sound from the Arkansas production of :
