I Saw the Light ★★★½

I am a huge fan of Hank Williams and have several of his records. This was a nicely done biopic but not outstanding. Of course, few are. Hank is such a tragic figure and he made many self-destructive decisions on top of his health issues and probable depression or bi-polar disorder.

They brushed right over his Luke the Drifter output. It's mentioned, but not explained. He used Luke the Drifter to record mostly Gospel songs, such as his own composition, I Saw The Light. That song is still sung in churches today, and probably most of those singing don't even know he wrote it. I have two albums full of Luke the Drifter recordings, so it was a large output for only 6 six years in addition to the many Hank Williams recordings.
