Based on the life of Tennessee sheriff Buford Pusser whom 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.
The character of John Witter is loosely based on Carl "Towhead" White, who headed the stateline mob. It was believed that Buford Pusser had him assassinated. Louise Hathcock was his girlfriend.
I got a couple of boys in Alabama that'll teach him something he'll never forget.
When Buford is in the Judge's chambers talking to the Judge you can clearly see the shadow of the boom mike visible on the wall behind him.
Although the UK cinema version was uncut the 1988 Vestron video version was cut by 29 secs by the BBFC to heavily edit a scene where a woman is whipped and closeup shots of her wounds.
