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

Stud Pardee tells Pinky Dobson that he "knew exactly where he was gonna end up", after sliding his Camaro in to park at the smokehouse. Stud actually hit the low-angle camera that was setup in front of the trash can, ruining that shot. See more »

Pallid sequel
6 May 2005 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Follow-up to 1973's "Walking Tall" continues the real-life drama surrounding Tennessee sheriff Buford Pusser, but this installment plays like a lame TV-movie. Bo Svenson takes over the lead role from Joe Don Baker, but he's much too mild for the part; he comes off like an ambling country singer with a bat instead of a guitar. Good supporting actors like Richard Jaekel, Luke Askew and Robert DoQui end up with very little to do. I would give the film one-star strictly on its good intentions, but the screenplay is a transparent and lazy mass of routine predicaments and the production is cheapjack. Followed in 1977 by "Final Chapter-Walking Tall" and in 1978 by the television film "A Real American Hero".
