Synopsis
Law-and-order Selma, Tennessee sheriff Buford Pusser, the resourceful, club-wielding real-life folk hero whose career inspired three ultra-violent movies, returns to wage a relentless battle against a dapper local moonshiner in this TV feature. Brian Dennehy assumed the role played originally by Joe Don Baker in the hugely successful "Walking Tall" and by Bo Svenson in the two sequels. Forrest Tucker, who was Buford's dad in the last, recreates his role in this TV version.
