“Hello, I’m Johnny Cash.” The other night PBS, as part of their P.O.V. Series, aired the 1969 Johnny Cash documentary Johnny Cash: The Man, His World, His Music. Shot in 1968 and ’69, the film is an absolute must for Cash fans, featuring the artist on the never-ending road shortly after his stint at Folsom Prison – one of the many peaks in his long career that began in Memphis and ended with his death in 2003. Throughout the film’s 90 minutes the audience is privy to Cash’s relationship (and performances) with Bob Dylan, playing to maximum security prisons, Indian reservations, and down-time hanging out with family and friends. Classic stuff. Trailer below.

  1. I saw this documentary about a year ago… It’s really awesome. The live footage is great and the stuff of him listening to people’s songs before he goes on stage.. Really good stuff.

  2. sometimes, it causes me to tremble.

  3. > the film is an absolute must for Cash fans

    Sorry. I’m confused by that.

    Are there people who aren’t fans of Johnny Cash? Seriously?

  4. ^^^^^!!!!!

  5. As far as I can tell, they have always been happy together, and love each other very much. I wish them all happiness. I saw their wonderful photos on interracial chatting .c o m They are cute.

  6. Does anyone know who the young man singing after the awards show is? He sings a beautiful song for Johnny and I’m curious if he went on to any further musical success.
