Hootenanny Hoot is a 1963 folk music musical film directed by Gene Nelson. It stars Peter Breck and Ruta Lee.[2]


A TV director, having split up with his producer-wife, decides to telecast a traveling hootenanny show.


Musical acts:


Ruta Lee signed in June 1963.[3] Gene Nelson signed to direct.[4]

The film was shot in nine days. Katzman was so pleased he gave Nelson the job directing Elvis Presley in Kissin' Cousins.[5]


The Los Angeles Times said the plot "wouldn't stand steady in a light breeze" but the filmmakers had "assembled a lively group of hootenany experts - and that's probably enough to ensure success."[6]
