Plot summary

Clint Eastwood plays a would-be western singer named Red Stoval suffering from tuberculosis who is finally given an opportunity to make it big at the Grand Ole Opry. He is accompanied by his young nephew (played by Eastwood's son Kyle) to Nashville, Tennessee where he is supposed to record a song.

After a series of adventures which include the nephew's "coming of age" in a house of ill repute, he and Uncle Red finally arrive at Nashville, only to have the tuberculosis reach a critical stage in the middle of the recording session, where Red's lines are filled in by a side guitarist (played by Marty Robbins). Red finally succumbs while his nephew vows to tell the story of his uncle.

Film Location

The first part of the movie was filmed in Bird's Landing, California. However, the majority of this feature was filmed in and around Calaveras County, east of Stockton, California. Exterior scenes include Main Street, Mountain Ranch; Main Street, Sheepranch; and the Pioneer Hotel in Sheepranch. Extras were locally hired and many of the towns residents are seen in the movie.
