Movie Info

Country-western star Roy Acuff heads the cast of the modest Republic musical Night Train to Memphis. Taking time off from his musical duties, Acuff tries to patch up a feud between a family of hillbillies and a railroad company. Complicating matters is the fact that Roy's brother Don (Allan Lane) has sided with the family against the railroad, all the while romancing Constance (Adele Mara), daughter of train executive Stevenson (Joseph Crehan). For those not interested in bucolic backwoods comedy, the film offers several "funny" African American stereotypes, including Nicodemus Stewart (who later played "Lightnin" on TV's Amos N Andy) and Nina Mae McKinney (who once played the leading role in King Vidor's Hallelujah). Night Train to Memphis was produced by Dorrell and Stuart McGowan, of Death Valley Days fame.more
