The Gold Guitar

Has anyone ever written a book about the country music genre films of the 1960s? They were mostly released in the South. This one--from '66, of course--co-starred a woman I would later get to meet and work with, Skeeter Davis, as well as George Ellis, an Atlanta actor beloved for his role of local TV horror host "Bestoink Dooley." 

In these kinds of films, there may or may not be a rudimentary plot but the ultimate point is to get in as many country and western tunes as possible in music video style.

  1. Yeah, a book on these fascinating films ('haybalers' as 'Variety' called 'em) is long overdue.
