A fly on the wall account that follows the near legendary singer on tour in the USA during the late sixties. Crammed with superb music footage the film also takes time out to relax with the man behind the most famous voice in Country music. Wether visiting family or friends, winding down backstage or on a solitary hunting expedition Johnny Cash always finds a song to fit the occasion. Alongside live performances of great hits like RING OF FIRE, FOLSOM PRISON BLUES and BIG RIVER there are classic duets with his wife, June Carter plus rock'n' roll stars Carl Perkins and Bob Dylan. From receiving his award for the "Folsom Prison album" at the 2nd ever Country Music awards in Nashville to waxing philosophical on the tour bus; from playing in front of hardened criminals to backstage, arranging record company auditions for budding songwriters, Johnny Cash- The Man, His World, His Music stands as confirmation of the artist's status as one of the greatest singer/songwriters of all time.

It really gives you insight into Johnny Cash's background and the inspiration for his music.
I learned about this film when I was traveling on business and was just flipping channels on TV and landed on the channel running the film. I was immediately drawn into it but I had come in on the middle and after seeing the remainder I wanted to see what I had missed. I couldn't find it listed anywhere else running on TV and so I found it online and purchased it. I'm very happy with the purchase. I even showed it to my adult kids and they enjoyed it very much also.
My favorite parts are when he is in the dressing room after receiving the CMA album of the year award in Nashville and someone has introduced him to a kid who is a singer song-writer and he tells the kid to play his best stuff for him. The attention and encouragement he paid to that kid was just amazing. There are other similar scenes where he patiently and humbly gives his time to fans.
Another scene is of him peering through the windows of his childhood home, a share-cropper house in Arkansas upon returning for a visit there. The home is long abandoned. Then he and June Carter Cash enter the house through the back door and he reminisces about living in that house and his childhood. Haunting to me. I grew up on a farm in Arkansas and that whole scene really connected with me but I think it would connect with you also even if you didn't grow up on a farm.
The intimate scenes sitting in his living room and singing and talking about songs he had written is very compelling also.
This film is well worth the price and worth watching over and over.
we loved the story clips and music and the interviews with Johnny
so many times "life stories - biographies" are filled with interviews by other people talking about the subject
but, this DVD is Johnny - big as life! and many of the songs are full length (another thing that doesn't often happen in a biographical DVD)
yes, would recommend to all those who love and appreciate Johnny Cash!
