Joe Don Baker and Bo Svenson are WALKING TALL (review)

Joe Don Baker and then Bo Svenson (in the sequels) are WALKING TALL.  Ex-wrestler Buford Pusser returns to his home town with his family to set up roots only to find its underbelly overrun with gamblers, prostitutes, and bootlegging.  After being beaten and left for dead, Buford takes the law into his own hands when the police prove to be just as corrupt as the criminals who are running the town.  Buford becomes the peoples' hero and is elected as the town's new sheriff; however, that also puts him and his family in the cross-hairs of the Stateline mob.  Shout Factory has given the HD-mastered treatment to all three of films of the original trilogy (forget that sucky "remake" with The Rock).
