Billy Bizor, Lightnin' Hopkins, Mance Lipscomb, Ruth
Originally produced by Les Blank Films in 1969.
The great Texas bluesman Lightnin' Hopkins is captured brilliantly in this deeply moving film. Blank reveals Lightnin's inspiration, and features a generous helping of classic blues. The film includes performances at an outdoor barbeque and a black rodeo, and a visit to his boyhood town of Centerville, Texas. This powerful portrait is among Blank's special masterworks.
