Walking Tall

Walking Tall Trilogy Boxed Set

Walking Tall is a 1973 semi-biopic of Sheriff Buford Pusser, a former professional wrestler-turned-lawman in McNairy County, Tennessee. It starred Joe Don Baker as Pusser. The film was directed by Phil Karlson.
Pusser, at his wife Pauline's behest, retires from the professional wrestling ring and moves back to Tennessee to start a logging business with his father, Carl Pusser. With a friend, he visits a gambling and prostitution establishment, the Lucky Spot, and is beaten up after catching them cheating at craps. Pusser is seriously injured with a knife and receives over 200 stitches. He complains to the sheriff but is ignored, and soon becomes aware of the rampant corruption in McNairy County. Pusser decides to clean up the county and runs for sheriff. Buford Pusser wins, and becomes famous for being incorruptible, intolerant of crime, and for his array of four foot hickory clubs which he uses to great effect in destroying clandestine gambling dens and illegal distilleries, and even against criminals.

Some residents praise Buford Pusser as an honest cop in a crooked town; others denounce him as a bully willing to break some laws to uphold others.

Pusser is ambushed more than once, and finally he and Pauline are ambushed in their car. Pauline is killed, and Pusser is seriously injured, admitted to the hospital after being shot for the second time. Still in a neck and face cast, he rams a sheriff cruiser through the front doors of the Lucky Spot, killing two of the men who attacked him.

As he leaves with two deputies, the town arrives and throws the gambling tables and furniture into a pile in the parking lot and lights a bonfire, while Pusser wipes tears from his eyes.

The original Walking Tall was a hit, but the sequels, Walking Tall Part 2 (September 28, 1975), and Walking Tall: Final Chapter ( May 31,1977), both starring Bo Svenson, were far less profitable. On December 9, 1978 CBS aired "A Real American Hero", with Brian Dennehy as Buford Pusser. Forrest Tucker reprised his role of Carl Pusser from "Walking Tall: Final Chapter". This 2-hour TV movie was originally titled "The Letter Of The Law". It was retitled "Hard Stick" for a VHS release in the 1980's. A short-lived 1981 television series Walking Tall (again starring Svenson) further dramatized Pusser's life and career. The TV series began on January 17, 1981, and, after 7 one-hour segments, was last aired on March 31, 1981. The real Buford Pusser himself was killed in a car crash; his daughter, in another car behind him, found him in the ditch. He died upon impact or shortly afterwards, and the wreck remains a mystery.

In 2004, a remake starring professional wrestler Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson was made. Although it took many elements of Pusser's life and the original Walking Tall, many things were changed, such as Johnson's character's name (Chris Vaughn) and setting the film in semi-rural Kitsap County, Washington, although it was filmed in Squamish, B.C., Canada. Two sequels to the remake were produced, and released in 2007: Walking Tall: The Payback and Walking Tall: Lone Justice, both made in Dallas, Texas and released directly to DVD. These sequels starred Kevin Sorbo as Nick Prescott, the son of the town's sheriff who takes the law into his hands when his father is killed in an alleged car accident.

Cry Freedom

Cry Freedom
Cry Freedom is a 1987 British drama film directed by Richard Attenborough, set in the late 1970s, during the apartheid era of South Africa. It was written from a screenplay by John Briley based on a pair of books by journalist Donald Woods. The film centres around the real-life events involving black activist Steve Biko and his friend Donald Woods, who initially finds him destructive, and attempts to understand his way of life. Denzel Washington stars as Biko, while actor Kevin Kline portrays Woods. Cry Freedom delves into the ideas of discrimination, political corruption, and the repercussions of violence.

The film was primarily shot on location in Zimbabwe due to political turmoil in South Africa at the time of production. As a film showing mostly in limited cinematic release, it was nominated for multiple awards, including Academy Award nominations for Best Actor in a Supporting Role, Best Original Score, and Best Original Song. It also won a number of awards including those from the Berlin International Film Festival and the British Academy Film Awards.

A joint collective effort to commit to the film's production was made by Universal Pictures and Marble Arch Productions. It was commercially distributed by Universal Pictures theatrically, and by MCA Home Video for home media. Cry Freedom premiered in theaters nationwide in the United States on November 6, 1987 grossing $5,899,797 in domestic ticket receipts. The film was at its widest release showing in 479 theaters nationwide. It was generally met with positive critical reviews before its initial screening in cinemas.

Following a news story depicting the demolition of a slum in East London, South Africa, journalist Donald Woods (Kevin Kline) seeking more information about the incident, ventures off to meet black activist Steve Biko (Denzel Washington). Biko has been officially banned by the South African government and is not permitted to leave his defined banning area at King William's Town Woods is formally against Biko's banning, but is still critical of his political views. Biko invites Woods to visit a black township to see the impoverished conditions and to witness the effect of the government imposed restrictions which make up the apartheid system. Woods begins to agree with Biko's desire for a South Africa where blacks have the same opportunities and freedoms as those enjoyed by the white population. As Woods comes to understand Biko's point of view, a friendship develops between them.

After a political speech at a gathering outside his banning area, Biko is arrested and later beaten to death while in police custody. Woods works to expose the police's complicity in Biko's death. He meets with Jimmy Kruger (John Thaw), the South African Minister of Justice in his house at Pretoria, but his efforts to expose the truth lead to his own banning. Woods and his family are targeted in a campaign of harassment by the security police. He later decides to seek asylum in England to expose the corrupt and racist nature of the South African authorities. After a long trek, Woods is eventually able to escape to the country of Lesotho, disguised as a priest. His wife Wendy (Penelope Wilton) and their family later join him, and are flown to Botswana with the aid of Bruce Haigh (John Hargreaves), a controversial Australian diplomat who uses his diplomatic immunity to help them.

The film's epilogue displays a graphic detailing a long list of anti-apartheid activists (including Steve Biko), who died under suspicious circumstances while imprisoned by the government.

The Witches of Eastwick

The Witches of Eastwick (Keepcase)
The Witches of Eastwick is a 1987 comic horror film based on John Updike's novel of the same name. It was directed by George Miller, and starred Jack Nicholson as Daryl Van Horne, alongside Cher, Susan Sarandon, and Michelle Pfeiffer as the eponymous witches. The film is a blend of gothic horror and screwball comedy.
Alexandra Medford (Cher), Jane Spofford (Susan Sarandon), and Sukie Ridgemont (Michelle Pfeiffer) are three dissatisfied women living in the small town of Eastwick, New England. Alexandra is a sculptress and single mother of one daughter, Jane is a newly divorced music teacher incapable of having children, and Sukie is an extremely fertile woman with six daughters, who also works as a journalist at the "Eastwick Word". Besides a strong friendship, these three women also share the similar misfortune of being abandoned by their husbands. Unaware that they are witches, the women unwittingly form a coven, of which they have weekly get-togethers, where they drink, play cards, and share their fantasies about ideal men.

The day after one such meeting, a mysterious man (Jack Nicholson) arrives in the town and immediately stirs up trouble by buying the city's landmark property, the Lennox Mansion. The arrival of this enigmatic stranger causes fascination among the townsfolk, all except local townswoman Felicia Alden (Veronica Cartwright), the Christian wife of newspaper editor Clyde Alden (Richard Jenkins). Clyde is the boss of Sukie', of whom Felicia seems not to be fond of. Although Felicia is not a witch, she is somehow able to sense that this man, whose name seems to be easily forgotten by everyone, is up to no good. One night, at one of Jane's music recitals, the strange man appears and makes a spectacle of himself, which leads to more gossip among the people. After the recital, Jane receives flowers and a personal note from the man with the initial "D" written on it. This then sparks Sukie's memory, and she finally reveals the man's name to be Daryl Van Horne. At the very moment Sukie remembers his name, her beaded necklace inexplicably breaks and falls to the floor, causing Felicia, who had mocked Daryl's name, to trip down a large staircase and break her leg.

Not long after his arrival, Daryl begins to seduce the women one by one, beginning with self-assured Alexandra, who is at first appalled by his arrogance and bravado, but then allows him into her heart. Later, he moves on to his next victim, Jane, who is shown to be very shy and reserved. As the two sit down and share polite conversation, Jane explains to Daryl that the home he recently purchased is said to be an area where people were burned alive after being accused of witchcraft. Daryl then encourages Jane to stop living a life of doubt and learn to enjoy herself by living recklessly. She takes his advice by letting her hair down and allowing herself to have fun. The next day, Daryl invites all three women over to the mansion, which allows him to finally turn his attention on Sukie. Jealousy and rivalry emerge among the women, leading to a supernatural game of tennis, during which the tennis ball begins to behave oddly by telekinetically decreasing its speed. This is the first sign to the women of their magical abilities. Now spending more and more time with Daryl, the women begin to have the most pleasurable time of their entire lives. One night, inside Daryl's mansion, the girls begin giggling at one another and soon find themselves levitating over the swimming pool.

As time goes on, the women continue their presence at Daryl's mansion, which results in gossip and rumors spread by townswoman Felicia. Due to public opinion of the rumors throughout the town, Alexandra, Sukie, and Jane become outcasts. The women of Eastwick begin to acknowledge the trio by giving nasty looks and making snotty comments. The witches begin to have second thoughts about whether or not they should continue to see each other, which then motivates Daryl to cause the girls to unknowingly cast a spell on Felicia, causing her to vomit cherry stones. Felicia is finally killed by her husband Clyde, who beats her with a fire poker, after being horrified by seeing his wife raving while so incredibly ill.

The women become terrified of the dangerous effects their relationship with Daryl has on the citizens of Eastwick. Therefore, they agree never to see or speak to each other and Daryl for a long period of time. This then upsets Daryl, causing him to use his powers against the girls, bringing their worst fears to life. Alex awakens into a bed of snakes, Jane begins to lose her youth, transforming into a old hag, and Sukie is forced to feel intense and wrenching pain.

Realizing that the only way to rid Daryl from their lives is by using witchcraft against him, the girls reunite only to seduce Daryl into believing they want him back. The next morning, the girls trick Daryl into going to town for a while, as they practice a banishing spell to make him go away forever. After Daryl has left the mansion, Sukie immediately rushes to Daryl's office and takes a spell book called "Maleficio", that he kept locked in a glass chest. Jane gathers some personal belongings of Daryl, such as hair, clothing, and pictures of him. Alex creates a Voodoo doll out of wax, which she makes to resemble Daryl. Meanwhile, as Daryl shops for bagels and ice cream that the girls requested for him to buy, he begins to feel sharp and aching pains in his body from the sorceresses sticking pins and needles into the doll. Daryl becomes infuriated with the girls' betrayal, and as he makes his way home, Daryl's devilish figure begins revealing itself more and more. Now terrified of what Daryl is capable of doing to them, the witches throw the puppet doll into the flames of a fire, causing Daryl to vanish.

Eighteen months pass after Daryl's disappearance, and Alexandra, Jane, and Sukie are now the mothers of Daryl's bastard sons. They still have their magic powers and now live together in Daryl's mansion, but when one of them thinks of Darryl, he appears on television screens, to speak to his sons. But worried of Daryl's intentions of trying to turn the boys wicked, the women just simply avoid him by clicking the TV off.
