Great Movie!!! Never a dull moment.

I first saw this movie when it came out. Had me spell bound from the start. Joe Don Baker was terrific as Buford and I always wondered why he did not star in the following sequels? Can anyone out there answer my question.

A film possessing raw power

Seeing WALKING TALL today for the first time, it's clear how just influential this film has been in the intervening decades. The story of one man clearing up the criminal element in his town has been done to death but here it feels fresh and electrifying; some might say that a fellow like Steven Seagal owes his whole career to this movie, with films like FIRE DOWN BELOW looking and feeling almost identical. The unique hook that WALKING TALL has is that it's based on a true story.

Joe Don Baker stars in his best role as the larger-than-life Buford Pusser, a normal fight who stands up for justice and ends up becoming the sheriff of a small town in the process. It's an action picture with some incredibly violent set-pieces and showdowns, but it never forgets to focus equally on character and plotting, making it one of those rarities: an all-round action flick as every bit as good as a big budget mainstream Hollywood film. Sequels and a remake followed, but none could successfully re-capture the original's raw power.

sequel of "The Phenix City Story"

In 1955, Phil Karlson directed "The Phenix City Story" about crime corruption just after the real facts happened in the city. After some violent crimes, the situation became under control, some were arrested, and some disappeared. Those who disappeared arrived in McNairy County, Tennessee, and the sad story began again. But Sheriff Buford Pusser was there, and he used the same weapons as the gangsters. And Phil Karlson made this tough movie, "Walking Tall", just after the real facts. Buford Pusser was the technical consultant and the huge Joe Don Baker played realistically his character. I have a picture with both of them, and Joe Don Baker doesn't seem to be so huge compared to the mountain Buford Pusser. I hope one day "Walking Tall" will get released again in theatres, I saw it at the french retrospective of Phil Karlson, and people were puzzled, a lot of people never saw it.
