Trivia

Charles Carr, the Auburn freshman who was driving when Williams died, passed away in July 2013 at the age of 79, in Montgomery, Alabama. Carr was hired on December 30, 1952, to drive Williams in his 1952 powder blue Cadillac from Montgomery to shows in Charleston, West Virginia, and Canton, Ohio. There was snow most of the way. On New Year's Eve, in the afternoon, Williams received word that a flight he had planned to take him to the job in Charleston was cancelled, due to snow. They checked into a Knoxville hotel, where hotel porters later had to carry Williams, under the influence of two shots of morphine, to the backseat of the car when it was decided to drive to Canton. The next morning, in Oak Hill, West Virginia, Carr found Williams dead, lying in the same position where the porters had placed him. Carr remained in Montgomery, working in investment and real estate until he retired. See more »

I've never seen "The Car Hank Died In" in Nashville, so I can't tell if it's accurate. But at one point in the film, Hank was extolling it's virtues as a "ElDorado". The first ElDorados were made in 1953. They made 503, a figure widely argued as plus or minus a couple. It's signature wrap around windshield, the first, was still an inexact science, as glass changes when it cools. The bodies were hand built to fit the windshields, and both were slightly unique. Good movie, though. Since I have to write ten lines I will add my appreciation for the curious relationship between Sir Hank and the Driver. I love Hank's music, and a contemporary reported his reading girls' dime novels and explaining that there was where his lyrics came from. Like..."Your Cheatin' Heart Will Tell On You.". Yes Sir, it will.
