5.0 out of 5 stars One you will never forget July 3, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST POSSIBLE HANK BIOGRAPHY August 18, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brillant! October 25, 2005
Format:DVD
"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.

4.0 out of 5 stars You gotta get used to the voice. August 7, 1997
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Once you get past the lead actor's voice--it's not a double for Hank's by any stretch of the imagination--this is a fun film to watch. The actor who plays Hank is virtually a dead-on look-alike, so once I got used to hearing him, I could imagine I was actually watching a Hank Williams concert. The mood is just right, although the acting could have been cut short, with a little more focus on the music. The acting is too melodramatic at parts, especially the scenes where Hank is in his car on the night he died, and the characters are too archetypical, especially the drug dealer, "Doc," who gives Hank his fix, and the drunk in the audience. The band is quite good, the crowd is realistic, and the lead actor does a great job impersonating Hank, beyond the voice part. All in all, it's an enjoyable film, and it's a must for fans of Hank Williams. END

5.0 out of 5 stars Hank Williams-The show he never gave July 26, 2006
Format:DVD
I have NEVER done this before, I am compeled to do so now. If you never met The Hank, this was he, if you did not live in 1952(I did) you were there, if you think it impossible to hold your breath 2+ hours, watch the movie, as the credits roll you are waiting to hear the click, click, click of the 8 mil. film like the old home movies use to do, I had only to (brief) cause for pauz, the NYPD bartender, that tried, but failed, to remind you it was not 52' and he didn't play my favorite song, Lonesome whistle, other than those 2 or 3 seconds, I was totally spellbound, I have seen good movies, watch over again ones and the make me laugh and cry movies, I have to say this is the first to completly overwhelm me, if you are a true movie buff, do not miss this one, like Hank himself, it is truly great.

Even if you don't have a clue as to who Hank Williams is, this video will make you an instant fan. Hank Willams is the priamal scream of country music, and this video is hauntingly realistic. Get this before it goes out of print or you'll be sorry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hank Williams lives again in sensational, emotional film. November 17, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Although this film appears simple... it's a filmed version of a London stage play... it quietly builds to an emotional pitch unequaled by even the classics of Ingmar Bergman. Hank Williams is/was the most intensely loved artist in country music. His work will never be surpassed because the usually unspoken secret of his work is that (like the saints) he wrote by grace of God and has reached people's hearts in time of intense trouble... I've seen it 12 times. The final 90 seconds are emotional beyond description. Highest possible recommendation. 5 stars+++

4.0 out of 5 stars One Of The Better Ones January 22, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
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) :)
