P.O.V: Johnny Cash: The Man, His World, His Music

In this classic 1969 documentary, the Man in Black is captured at his peak, the first of many in a looming roller-coaster career. Tuesday, August 11th at 11:00 p.m. on PBS-HD.


Fresh on the heels of his At Folsom Prison album, Johnny Cash (pictured) displays the dark intensity and raw talent that made him a country music star and cultural icon.

Director Robert Elfstrom got closer than any other filmmaker to Cash, who is seen performing with his new bride, June Carter Cash; in a rare duet with Bob Dylan; and behind the scenes with friends, family and aspiring young musicians.
