By far one of Clint's masterpieces. His performance is incredible along with that of his son's. There are so many memorable moments and the story of a country singers dream is told perfectly. An outstanding adventure told beautifully and one that will definitely stand out as one of his true classics.

Shockingly good. Eastwood makes for a terrific singer, and his character is outside of his normal range of tough guys. Alexa Kenin steals the show when she's on-screen with her wacky character. The film is still odd, at times, and his character make politically incorrect (even for the Depression-era) moves, but this is one of his finest performances. And his direction here isn't bad either, especially for an earlier Eastwood film.
