Fly-on-the-Wall Account of the Singer's Life On and Off Stage

Filmed during Cash's tour of the United States in the late Sixties, director Robert Elfstrom offers a carefully airbrushed account of the star's life on and off stage. While attracting huge audiences wherever he goes, as well as winning awards, he remains eminently normal - the kind of man who willingly signs autographs, listens to pieces of doggerel composed by adoring fans, and poses for innumerable photos taken in the pre-smartphone era.

In sequences shot in his tour bus Cash is shown interacting with his immediate family (including June Carter Cash) as well as his crew. As they travel along endless stretches of road, Cash reminisces about his humble past while enjoying his present life, and thanks God for having helped him achieve success. He is also shown putting together his latest recordings; like any artist worth his salt, he is meticulous about every aspect of his work, including orchestrations, pronunciation, and sound.

In truth, the documentary is not especially interesting per se; although it offers fascinating insights into aspects of American popular cultures during the late Sixties, especially country music. With contributions from other great artists of that time, including Bob Dylan and Carl Perkins, JOHNNY CASH! THE MAN, HIS WORLD, HIS MUSIC can be described as mildly diverting.
