New York goes country in Rhinestone when a country western music star (that’s Dolly!) must turn an obnoxious New York cab driver (that’s Sly!) into the latest country singing sensation in order to break free from her sleazy NYC club contract. With even more than her contract at stake, she’s stuck with someone who can’t sing and hates country music “worse than liver.” So what else is there to do other than head to the hills of Tennessee for a two-week crash course in how to walk, talk, and sing like a genuine country star? Rhinestone is not-to-be-missed fun, screening on 35mm, co-written by Sylvester Stallone and directed by one of Nitehawk’s favorites, Bob Clark.
