Johnny Cash, his story. Johnny Cash and June Carter, their story. As we follow the life of Johnny Cash, we discover that his life was so entwined with the life of June Carter, you can’t have one without the other (no pun intended). Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon plays the part of June Carter with such conviction that you understand the strength of their love. As they say, this movie really rocks.
And tonight at 10:00 p.m. on PBS, check out the 1969 documentary Johnny Cash: The Man, His World, His Music. Watch him perform with June Carter Cash and Bob Dylan; then go behind the scenes with friends and family.
