Movie Info

Regarded by many as America's foremost humorist and likened by others to a late 20th century reincarnation of Samuel Langhorne Clemens and Will Rogers, Minnesota-based Garrison Keillor commenced his popular public radio series A Prairie Home Companion in 1974. In each weekly three-hour broadcast, Keillor utilizes folk music, often parodistic playlets, satirical product endorsements and gentle short stories to both send up old-time radio programs and conjure up an enchanting view of middle Americana. Created as an episode of PBS's popular American Masters documentary series, Peter Rosen's Garrison Keillor: The Man On the Radio in the Red Tennis Shoes looks beyond the mythos of A Prairie Home Companion to profile Keillor biographically and examine his unusual litany of contributions to American pop culture.

Critic Reviews for Garrison Keillor: The Man on the Radio in the Red Shoes

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (3)

An amiable portrait of this somewhat enigmatic radio performer.

Feb 27, 2009 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Portrait captures the charm of A Prairie Home Companion and its creator considerably more than Robert Altman's star-heavy 2006 feature of the same name.

The Man on the Radio in the Red Shoes is an utterly pedantic TV documentary inexplicably given life on the big screen.

Why does he wear red shoes? Documentary forgets to ask.
