I have studied the real life of Buford Pusser. Shy of making it yet to McNairy County, I have all the books on him that I know of, and that provide true facts. I also own the movies and recently bought the TV series on DVD.
The movies were entertaining however, according to the biographies, some of the facts were switched around and parts were added to the movies. The disclosure at the end allows Bing Crosby Production to do this. Comparing the movies to the TV series, I have to agree with Paul-308. Though it was the actor, Mr. Svenson, and the name was them same the feeling watching the series was not the same. The series is entertaining but it just didn't seem like "Walking Tall." They changed the county name to McNeal instead of McNairy. (That in itself I don't understand.) Then the modern cars? I noticed that they changed the type of rotary lights on the cruisers in the series from what sheriff Pusser and Movies actually had. (trivial I know.) Sheriff Pusser made his mark in history as a law enforcement official. He later lost his life (in my opinion because of it.) I think it would be more meaningful to people if he were honored for this by staying with the facts.
I apologize if I have offended anyone with what I have said.
