JOHNNY CASH COLLECTOR'S GIFT SET
FIVE MINUTES TO LIVE-
In this classic crime noir thriller, country music legend Johnny Cash (in his film debut) stars as Johnny Cabot, a violent, guitar playing ex-con who gets another chance at the big money when a notorious gangster (Fred Dorella) offers to bring him in on a bank heist. While Dorella holds up the bank, Cabot, pretending to be an insurance salesman, kidnaps the wife of the bank's vice-president, holding her for ransom. Simmering sexual tension soon develop as a demented Cabot makes advances toward the housewife - in true pulp style, he forces her to dress in a negligee while singing the song "Five Minutes to Live" (written by Cash). Featuring an early performance from eight year-old Ron Howard (director of A Beautiful Mind), and a great turn by Cash as the neurotic, guitar and gun-toting Cabot, this rarely-seen cult pulp thriller can now be seen for the first time in Australia.
A GUN FIGHT-
In Baja Rio two aging gunfighters make a life changing decision. With the sun setting on their dusty careers, down on their luck and with no other skills to exploit they decide to capitalise on their notoriety and sell tickets to their own winner-takes-all shootout. With a fortune in prize money on the line, Will Tenneray (Oscar® nominee Kirk Douglas) and Abe Cross (country superstar Johnny Cash) load their six shooters, hitch their holsters and prepare to face off in one final high-noon showdown.
Also featuring Karen Black (Five Easy Pieces), Jane Alexander (All The President's Men) and Keith Carradine (Southern Comfort), A Gunfight is a sharp shooting Western where there are no good guys or villains, only the quick and the dead!

JOHNNY CASH- AT THE TOWN HALL PARTY-
Johnny Cash created his own sub-genre, fusing the blunt emotional honesty of folk, the rebelliousness of rock & roll, and the world weariness of country. The Johnny Cash you hear on these two remarkable live performances is not the venerable legend of today. This was the young, feral Cash, full of piss and sly orneriness. Even to those who know every note, joke and guitar lick on Johnny Cash At Folsom Prison or San Quentin, hearing Cash in his prime, aided and abetted by the Tennessee Two, guitarist Luther Perkins and bassist Marshall Grant, is a revelation. These historic documents, sourced directly from the 1958 and 1959 kinescope reels, capture Cash in his most revolutionary days, laying the bedrock of all that was to come.
