This amazing bank heist movie stars Johnny Cash, Vic Tayback, Ron Howard, and country music great, Merle Travis. Johnny Cash gives a surprising performance as a guitar playing, sadistic psycho-killer. Six year old Ron Howard is absolutely adorable and practically steals the whole show. A must see film.

A gang of bank robbers (Johnny Cash) terrorize a small town by knocking on doors and then killing whoever answers.
