As a true crime buff I found this film a profoundly compelling story and
in which, considering the racial attitudes of the place and era, the
testimony of two black men actually convicted a white and powerful land
baron of murder.
One of the two principal characters which are the centerpiece of this
is Andy Griffith who gives an outstanding performance as the self assured
and dubious law abiding Christian John Wallace, owner of a great land
located in Meriwether County of rural Georgia.
The other is the late and legendary country western singer Johnny Cash
the fearless incorruptible southern sheriff Lamar Potts with a true
for the principle of natural justice.
When tenant farmer Wilson Turner steals one of Wallace's prized dairy
the latter, along with three cronies, decide to enact their own justice on
They pursue Turner in a car chase across the county line into
Coweta where Wallace corners Turner at a roadside cafe and viciously and
fatally bludgeons him on the head with the butt of a gun.
The witnessed crime comes under the jurisdiction of Coweta County
Potts who after intensive investigation arrests Wallace and the others.
In the meantime Wallace with the coerced help of two of his black farm
workers have already disposed of Turner's body by burning it and
the ashes in a nearby river.
Confidently believing he has got away with murder because no body can be
found Wallace and his cohorts are sent to trial but Potts and his lawmen
have turned up evidence of bone fragments in ash deposits at the crime
and the accused are duly convicted and sentenced. Potts also shows his
relentless pursuing of others involved in the crime by arresting
County Sheriff Hardy Collier as an accessory after the
Griffith and Cash couldn't have been more perfect choices for this film
their respective roles. The former, I have always been used to seeing as
smiling friendly character of "The Andy Griffith Show" and many other
but whose great acting talents in this instance show he can play just as
well the evil, corrupt and reprehensible individual at the expense of his
popular image. Cash for his part as the slow southern drawl talking lawman
demonstrates his capacity as a serious and capable actor in addition to
already established singing talents. I am led to believe he was chosen for
this part because he resembled the original Lamar Potts.
This is a film which deserves a greater audience than it has got and
that with truth and honor justice can prevail for all as
