Fiddlin' Man: The Life and Times of Bob Wills

1996 NR

Dubbed the "king of Western swing," charismatic Bob Wills won a place in America's heart with his lively fiddling and the signature sound of his backup group, the Texas Playboys. This nostalgic documentary chronicles the career of Wills, from his early days on radio to top billing at the famed Cain Ballroom in Tulsa, Okla., to roles in silver screen sagebrush sagas. Included are reminiscences by the Texas Playboys and an array of performances.
