  • Anyone for Velveeta?

    This is strictly an exploitation flick -- a cynical attempt to cash in on the folk music craze. Everything here reeks of inauthenticity -- from the jazz dancers that intrude on the musical numbers, to the obvious lip-synching done by the performers. Everything seems processed, like Velveeta, and everything seems forced and unnatural. There's a part of you that wishes they have done away with the two romantic plots and focus squarely on the music. But failing that the "Hootennany" TV series in not available on home video, this kitschfest has to do, at the least as a time-capsule cultural artifact.

  • Any Other Films Of This Genre????

    Before the days of MTV this was the best way to see artist performing there hits outside of a quick slot on a variety show like Ed Sullivan. While I'm familiar with "It's Trad, Dad", are there any other movies of this ilk??????

  • This film is a real hoot!

    Often people don't realize how valauble movies like Hootenany Hoot really are. The value goes far beyond the musical performances themselves and show us a slice of Americana even if the director didn't mean to achieve that goal.There are some cool angles to this movie that if u sit back and suspend your belief or disbelief that will bring some belly laughs and ingsights about our culture. I really liked the Joe and Ediie number, the only black performers n the film, as well as the efforts at dance- just enjoy and by all means don't take this film too seriously - I love the swimsuits and lake scene in the background in one segment- outstanding!

    The perormers shown helped put faces to music. Part of American Musicana. more of a history of are past. Folk, rock and roll.

    To briefly mention the plot of 'Hootennany Hoot' would be to give it more significance than it deserves. The only reason to watch this movie is for the musical performances. Particularly memorable are the performances of Judy Henske and 'Joe and Eddie.' Also noteworthy is the performance by Johnny Cash. The movie is also somewhat interesting as a period piece.
