HE SAID, HE SAID:
(What Johnny said about Saul; what Saul said about Johnny)
MY FATHER AND THE MAN IN BLACK
Before there was Johnny and June, there was Johnny and Saul.
Following his father's suicide, director Jonathan Holiff discovers hundreds of letters and audio diaries, including recorded phone calls with Johnny Cash during his pill-fueled 1960s, triumphs at Folsom and San Quentin, marriage to June Carter, and his conversion in the early 1970s to born-again Christian.
An intense personal adventure that happens to feature one of 20th-century music's greatest icons, MY FATHER AND THE MAN IN BLACK tells the inside story of 'bad boy' Johnny Cash, his talented but troubled manager, Saul Holiff, and a son searching for his father in the shadow of a legend.
