Before there was Johnny and June, there was Johnny and Saul.
Following his father's suicide, director Jonathan Holiff discovers hundreds of letters and audio diaries, including recorded phone calls with Johnny Cash during his pill-fueled 1960s, triumphs at Folsom and San Quentin, marriage to June Carter, and his conversion in the early 1970s to born-again Christian.
An intense personal adventure that happens to feature one of 20th-century music's greatest icons, My Father and The Man in Black tells the inside story of "bad boy" Johnny Cash, his talented but troubled manager, Saul Holiff, and a son searching for his father in the shadow of a legend.

I love it because it is NOT your typical Hollywood movie...
I wanna watch it again..
I feel that people in the music business will really enjoy and appreciate this fresh approach and style..
Thank you sir for making this great movie...
This doc. has a lot of human emotions running the gamut from mis-understandings about another humans response to their own kids, to depressing out of control situations for the manager Saul's point of view and of course Victory's ever now and then..
There are lot of neat items & film footage & Photo's to see throughout this Doc.
You have to remember tho this is from Saul's point of view and not all is to be considered as real facts. but I did enjoy it a lot enough to buy it and I will be keeping this for sure.
