A strong performance by Richard Thomas brightens this biography of C&W star Hank Williams' troubled son. The film recounts Hank Jr.'s struggle with booze and pills, ending with his success as a singer in his own right. Backstage and on-the-road authenticity and fine performances by Clu Gulager and Merle Kilgore are other highpoints.
