Two Cash Movies Now Available on DVD

Two rare movies starring Johnny Cash are now available on DVD, released on the German imprint Bear Family. Five Minutes to Live, in which Cash plays a killer, was filmed in 1961. It was later re-released as Door to Door Maniac. The Night Rider was filmed in the late 1950s as a pilot for a TV series, with storylines based on hit country songs. Drawing inspiration from “Don’t Take Your Guns to Town,” Cash plays a gunfighter. The film also features singing cowboy Eddie Dean, as well as Merle Travis, Gordon Terry, Wesley Tuttle and Johnny Western.
