The Heritage House celebrates the February birthday of "The Man In Black" with Cult Movie Night -- screening one of only two of Johnny Cash's feature film appearances -- that of the character of Johnny Cabot in Five Minutes To Live (aka: Door To Door Maniac) released in 1961.
As his partner in crime, Fred Dorella (Vic Tayback), heads to the bank to extort cash from executive Ken Wilson (Donald Woods), Johnny Cabot (Johnny Cash) kidnaps Wilson's wife, Nancy (Cay Forrester). Fred tells Ken that, unless he hands over $70,000 in cash, Johnny will kill Nancy.
Ken comes up with a ploy to buy some time for the police to assess the situation.
But even though the scheme is coming unstuck, Fred and Johnny aren't about to go down quietly.
The screening will be on Thursday, Feb. 21, with two screenings at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
Length is 1:20 + trailers.
The Heritage House Arts & Civic Center is at 1428 Jenkins Road, Chattanooga, Tn. 37421.
Admission is free.
The film will be preceded by John Lloyd Miller's award-winning short film "I Still Miss Someone" featuring Mark Collie as Johnny Cash.
The other feature film Cash starred in was "A Gunfight" in 1971.
Being pre-1968, the film is rated NR (Not Rated), and therefore deemed suitable for adults only.
