The Gift: The Journey of Johnny Cash

YouTube Orig­i­nals presents The Gift: The Jour­ney of John­ny Cash:

John­ny Cash stands among the giants of 20th cen­tu­ry Amer­i­can life. But his sto­ry remains tan­gled in mys­tery and myth. This doc­u­men­tary, cre­at­ed with the full coop­er­a­tion of the Cash estate and rich in recent­ly dis­cov­ered archival mate­ri­als, brings Cash the man out from behind the leg­end. Tak­ing the remark­able Fol­som Prison record­ing as a cen­tral motif and fea­tur­ing inter­views with fam­i­ly and cel­e­brat­ed col­lab­o­ra­tors, the film explores the artis­tic vic­to­ries, the per­son­al tragedies, the strug­gles with addic­tion, and the spir­i­tu­al pur­suits that col­ored John­ny Cash’s life.

The Gift: The Jour­ney of John­ny Cash will be added to our list of Free Doc­u­men­taries, a sub­set of our col­lec­tion, 4,000+ Free Movies Online: Great Clas­sics, Indies, Noir, West­erns, Doc­u­men­taries & More. Enjoy!
