The dramatic true story, originally broadcast on CBS, starring Johnny Cash and Andy Griffith. From its original producer, newly offered on DVD. "Inspired casting pits Johnny Cash as the resolute hero against Andy Griffith, who cunningly portrays the self-deceived murderer." - The Hollywood Reporter In 1948, in rural Georgia, Coweta County is watched over by its legendary, indomitable Sheriff Lamar Potts (Johnny Cash). No felony had ever gone unsolved while Sheriff Potts was in charge. In the next county, though, there is a vast estate known as "The Kingdom." It's ruled by one man, John Wallace (Andy Griffith), whose power is absolute and beyond the law. But when Wallace chases one of his underlings to deliver ruthless punishment, he makes a critical mistake. He crosses over into Coweta County... Sheriff Potts' territory. This is the compelling true story of the man who ran the Kingdom, and the man who brought him down. "Played by Andy Griffith in a nifty villainous manner, Wallace doesn't stand a chance against Sheriff Potts, especially with Johnny Cash playing the role." - NY Post
