A documentary with a very hands-off approach from the camera crew. They let the music and the people speak for themselves. What really makes this a good documentary is the appearance of a aspiring country singer, Herbie Howell. After this documentary he seems to have disappeared again into the mists of time, which is probably appropriate for the story that this film is telling. For Dolly who comes to Nashville and makes it big, there is a Herbie who gets no more than a glimmer of hope.

Great!

Stop photography throughout this entire film makes it tedious and unwatchable. Too bad, I'll bet there is some good music here.
