Arkansas Weekend: Claim to Fame

By The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

PINE BLUFF — The Johnny Cash who greets visitors entering the Arkansas Entertainers Hall of Fame is poised with a guitar to perform, Jack Schnedler writes in Thursday's Arkansas Weekend section. All it takes for the singing to begin is a press of the red button just below the glass enclosure.

This Man in Black is an animatronic figure with parts that move while playing Cash classics, including “I Walk the Line." The quality of the faux Johnny falls some distance short of Disney World standards, but it does give a live-action start to the visit to the Hall of Fame, arranged in the auditorium lobby of the Pine Bluff Convention Center.

Additional memorabilia, arrayed in a series of display cases, provides often fascinating testimony to the wealth of arts and entertainment notables with Natural State roots.
