Special Features


Editorial Reviews

Buford Pusser was a Tennessee sheriff and a one-man army who walked tall and carried a big stick: a four-foot piece of oak.

The story begins with the critical and box office smash hit film Walking Tall, starring Joe Don Baker as Buford Pusser, the fed-up lawman who fought a tremendous uphill battle to clean up his hometown. Based on a true story, three classic films, the first starring Baker (GoldenEye), then featuring Bo Svenson (Inglourious Basterds) for the two sequels, have captured Pusser’s legacy as the man who showed America what Walking Tall is all about. The Walking Tall Trilogy is a testament to the legendary sheriff who decided it was time for payback . . . and became one of the most popular movie heroes of all time! All three titles in new anamorphic widescreen film transfers plus all-new special features

A trio of films from Bing Crosby Productions, the WALKING TALL series were mostly-fictionalized accounts of the life and alternately tragic and triumphant times of Tennessee small-town police chief Bufford Pusser in the `60s and early `70s. All three films - newly available on both Blu-Ray and DVD from Shout! Factory -make for ideal drive-in fare, mixing fisticuffs, some social justice sermonizing and vigilantism that would likewise become a potent formula for the "Death Wish" series.

The original "Walking Tall" is by far the best of the trio: a somewhat crudely made yet undeniably compelling B-movie with Joe Don Baker as Pusser, a former wrestler who returns to his small Tennessee town, only to find crime, corruption, moonshinin' and prostitution having overrun the local residents. Pusser nearly dies, twice, as he tries to clean up the town - first as a frustrated, concerned citizen, then as the newly elected sheriff - forever running into opposition from crooked judges, lying politicians and local white trash.

Baker's performance anchors the original WALKING TALL which became a huge hit in 1973, leading to a series of wannabes and similar "redneck justice" pictures. It's not a great movie by any means, but it has a certain charm about it, with the movie having been made on a workmanlike level across the board. Walter Scharf's melodic, occasionally overwrought score includes a forgettable Johnny Mathis end credits tune, while the supporting cast features little Leif Garrett as Pusser's son and a pair of young actresses who met with premature ends: Elizabeth Hartman, who plays Pusser's wife, later committed suicide in the `80s (she also voiced Mrs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bufford Pusser walks tall on DVD February 15, 2003
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have waited for a long time for the Walking Tall Trilogy to be released on DVD but was not over joyed with the DVD set. First I have to say is that the movies are all outstanding and can be watched over and over aging without loosing their excitement. But, it looks like Rhino did not use a master print but a copy of the video tape. The print they used I think is a very poor print. Walking Tall part 1 has alot of what I call "video tape lines' runnig through it, the Final Chapter is real dark in some scenes, and over all the video quality is not what you expect out of a DVD. It looks like you are watching a video tape. Rhino, you did Bufford Pusser an injustice! And I have to agree with the other reviewer; Where is the TV series at??? Release them pleaseeeee.
Over all, for the movies sake I give it a 5 star plus. On Rhinos part, 5 stars for releasing the movies on DVD, and 2 stars for their transfer. Go back to the master prints, thx them, re-do a new release to DVD including a release of the TV series.
If you like Walking Tall and Buford Pusser at all, this is a DVD set you will wnat to own

4.0 out of 5 stars Still Walking Tall May 7, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My brother got this last week at the Buford Pusser Museum, who received their shipment early.

We watched the first movie last week on my projector and 80" screen, and I can honestly say that this is the best this movie has ever looked. We saw no scratches, specks, dirt, nothing but a perfect picture. As far as HD quality, I can't speak for that since we only watched the first film.

I know a lot of people are curious about the special features, so here we go....

There are 2 discs on the blu ray set, and oddly enough, the first and 2nd movies are on the first disc on 1 side...the 3rd movie is on a disc by itself. I would have figured that part 1 would be on a disc alone, as it is the best film. Part 1 has 2 tv previews and a photo gallery; Part 2 has tv previews, a trailer and another photo gallery. Strangely, Part 2 is where the best feature is...the all-new "Buford Pusser Story" feature, which includes new interviews with many of the cast and real life people, including Leif Garrett, Dawn Lyn, Bruce Glover, Dwana Pusser and many more. What really disappointed and baffled me is that Joe Don Baker is only heard, not seen, as narrator. He is not shown giving his thoughts on-screen. Disc 2, which has Part 3 on it, has a trailer, more photos, and some older footage.

I can't speak yet for how parts 2 & 3 looked, as we only watched part 1, but the set is well worth the price for the fantastic transfer of the best of the trilogy and for the new interviews (even though we don't get to see Joe Don!).

5.0 out of 5 stars Hoping for some extra features this time!! March 2, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought the original Walking Tall Trilogy DVD set several years ago and it was packaged in a less that durable case and there were no extra features at all, not even the original film trailers. The picture quality on Final Chapter-Walking Tall was too dark at times. I have read that there will be some extra features included on this new release, but am not sure exactly what they will be or just how many. As this trilogy is fact-based, here's hoping for some factual type of documentary to maybe fill in some blanks and answer some long-lingering questions that have existed since Buford Pusser's suspicious death in a car crash in August 1974. His mother Helen firmly believed that he was murdered until her death and his daughter Dwana still believes it today.
