Movie Reviews

One you will never forget
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Iwould like to rate this movie with my own ratings. There are not enough stars in your ratings, that could give Sneezy Waters the credit he deserves,in the performance of singing the song,These Men With Broken Hearts.Iwatched this movie when it first was played on TV,and I am still watching it.There was something about the way he sang,or maybe I should say the way he talked through this song, that has left a mark on my heart,for the sad and lonely Hank Williams. Snezzy Waters must have had help from and Angel, to sing that song with such emotion, and make it all the way through it with-out breaking down crying.Everbody needs to watch this movie, if only to listen, to the words of the song Men With Broken Hearts.I ordered me another copy of it. What else could I possibly say, except get it while you still can.I would like to know who wrote the words to that song. Was it Hank Williams? God Bless Him."

""Sneezy Waters?"
I swear I forgot it wasn't really Hank Williams.
I saw this several years ago on tv somewhere and there isn't a wasted moment in it.
You have to watch the facial expressions and body language in the crowd.
This is an absolute work of art."

"Originating on stage in London, England in 1980, "The Show He Never Gave" is a labor of love by a devoted Hank Williams fan who fully understood Hank's legacy as the greatest country star of all time. Focusing on the last hours in his life, his story is told through words and music. Hank's addictions are part of the story, but kept in perspective. This is the most emotional movie I've ever seen, and I've seen thousands. Performances and photography are perfect. Since there is only 10 minutes of real Hank footage in existance --- which I finally saw after 50 years --- this hard-hitting movie is the next best thing."

"This movie is one of the better ones about Hank Sr. Compared to "Your Cheatin' Heart" and the Jim Owens films its probably the best. A fairly accurate job on Hank by Sneezy, excluding the revival/church type stuff. Hank would have never done that. Being a Hank Williams historian of sorts, Id recommend this one to Williams fans but watch it with a grain of salt. (ie Hank never had drums on stage) :)"
