About this movie

Walking Tall is a 1973 American action semi-biopic film of Sheriff Buford Pusser, a former professional wrestler-turned-lawman in McNairy County, Tennessee. It starred Joe Don Baker as Pusser. Tennessee sheriff Buford Pusser almost single-handily cleaned up his small town of crime and corruption, but at a personal cost of his family life and nearly his own life.

This movie was filmed in my hometown of Jackson, TN, and my sister and I were lucky enough to be cast as extras. It was such a fun experience, getting to know many of the stars and seeing the behind-the-scene details of movie production.
