"In 1973, WALKING TALL's Buford Pusser became the new face of vengeance, two years after DIRTY HARRY and BILLY JACK lit up unsuspecting evildoers."
Tennessee sheriff Buford Pusser sets out to rid his community of organized crime, prostitution, and gambling, only to incite a vicious crime war. Based on real events, this extremely violent film went on to huge boxoffice success, spawning a sequel and a television series.
Based on the true story of Tennessee sheriff Buford Pusser, who won fame by cleaning up his backwoods county. But when Pusser suffers a personal tragedy, his high-minded crusade against the local gambling and moonshine rings degenerates into violent, vigilante justice.
