    My husband and I found this film to be dated but watchable. The story itself is interesting.

    I was wondering why Joe Don Baker did not return for the sequels? I read on a website that Buford Pusser himself was to play the role in Part 2, but that he was killed before filming. Did Baker decide against doing the film because Buford was dead? The websites I have found that talk about Sheriff Pusser are not very detailed.

    I can only imagine what a sequel starring The Rock will be like. They will have to completely alter the storyline to fit his ethnic background.

    Waitamminit, they're remaking Walking Tall with The Rock??!!

    Brendan Gleeson, John Goodman, Takeshi Kitano [​IMG] , I'm there, but Buford Pusser shouldn't be some chisled Hollywood type.
