The Last Ride - CELEBRATE THE LEGEND OF HANK WILLIAMS
The Intimate Look at the Final Days of One of the Greatest
Singer-Songwriters in American History Debuts on Blu-ray and DVD June 4
“Just watched 'The Last Ride' story of Hank Williams' last trip. "Hey Good Lookin'" was the first song my mom taught me. Michael English did a genius version of "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" It says what we've ALL felt. Henry Thomas & Jesse James broke my heart.” - Cher
“This is a really good movie.” - Former U.S. President Bill Clinton
“I loved the film. It should be required viewing by those who dream of stardom and for those who make and break that dream for them.” - Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee
June 4th, 2013 – Ride off into the sunset with the most legendary country artist of all-time when THE LAST RIDE arrives on Blu-ray and DVD June 4 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Featuring an all-star cast Thomas (E.T.), Jesse James (Jumper), Kaley Cuoco (“The Big Bang Theory”), Fred Dalton Thompson (“Law & Order”) and Stephen Tobolowsky (“Californication”), this powerful film retraces the final days of a true American icon.
Based on the controversial life story of singer-songwriter, Hank Williams, THE LAST RIDE tells the powerful tale of country music’s original bad boy. The man, the myth and the music come together when Williams travels from Alabama to a series of New Year’s shows in West Virginia and Ohio. This remarkable journey leads straight into the heart and soul of the legendary performer...as he takes one last shot at redemption. Featuring all-new versions of Hank Williams’ greatest songs, this emotional tale of hope and truth is one you’ll never forget.
With 11 number one songs throughout his career, Williams’ music continues to touch people’s lives long after his passing 60 years ago. Former President Bill Clinton has said of THE LAST RIDE that it “takes us back to rural America in the 1950s, tells the story simply, and uses the music deftly, both to intensify the drama and to remind us of the timeless genius of Hank Williams.” Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee added “it’s a beautifully crafted and creative vehicle for telling the story of almost every gifted musician or actor who must reconcile the desire within to simply be a great artist and the demands of the public to be an accessible and accommodating celebrity.”
THE LAST RIDE Blu-ray and DVD includes a making of featurette.
