Stuart Erwin recieved his only Oscar nomination for playing Amos Dodd the hillbilly quarterback in The Pigskin Parade.
Stuart Erwin really actually has a pretty small role as the football star in this film. He mostly is just does what other tells him and he really never does anything himself. He plays the hillbilly as a hillbilly, although a quiet one. He does not go for the over the top hill billy instead a less over the top one although still a very stereotypical one. He really is fine at doing what he has to. Again nothing special about his performance here, I sort of liked his quiet approach to the hillbilly, since he was never annoying. He still does nothing amazing though and overall has very little to do. This is probably my shortest review ever, but there plainly is not very much to say about Erwin.
