Hi Steve, and welcome to the forum. Before I discovered this site, I thought I was the only Jim Reeves fan in the world too. It was nice to find out that he still has such a big following all over the world. I agree with you that there should be a movie about Jim. It's long overdue, but like some other fans have said, I can't think of anyone playing him that would do him justice. I always thought that maybe a really good documentary on Jim would be a better idea. I'm talking about something that Ken Burns might do. His documentaries are done so well, and that is exactly the kind of treatment that Jim deserves. A film like this might also give us fans a chance to see a lot of film footage on Jim that we've been wanting to see for years that might still not be available. If Larry was able to get together with Ken Burns for a project like this, I think it would be the best film on Jim that we could hope for, and that's saying a lot!
