Trivia

Buford Pusser agreed to portray himself in this film but, hours after signing the contract, he was killed when his car ran off the road near his home in Adamsville, Tennessee. Some locals believe his car was sabotaged in retribution for his stamping out the illegal activities of the stateline mob on the Tennessee-Mississippi border. See more »

Goofs

When Buford is destroying Stud Pardee's blue Camaro, a canvas sign on the building reads "McNairy County Livestock Auction". Later in that scene, a wooden, painted sign reads "Madison County 4-H Clubs Welcome You". See more »

The stick loses a little luster
16 August 1999 | by (Auburn, Me) – See all my reviews

This sequel to the 1973 picture of the same name but doesn't match up to the original. Bo Svenson stars this time as the big stick wielding southern Sheriff. The film takes up where the 73 film leaves off. Pusser is already well known around his parts and continues his war against the state line mob. Had this one been made with Joe Don Baker in the lead role it might have been better. Had Bo Svenson been in the original, likewise.

At times it drifts to the point that it resembles the adventures of a TV hero and not the exploits of a real person.
