‘Walk The line’ begins with a dramatic episode, the death of Johnny’s
brother Jack and finishes with the famous live recording at Folsom Prison.
Already it is a highly successful movie which has been nominated for several
have always wondered why there was
never a movie about Jim Reeves. For many years Mary Reeves told fans of plans for a movie about the life of Jim Reeves.
After Ed Gregory’s Bankruptcy Auction in 2003, which included many items from the former Jim Reeves estate, a copy of the script for a proposed movie about Jim Reeves surfaced. It was know that a few years after Jim’s death, Mary had been interviewed by a Hollywood scriptwriter. Probably this script is the result of many hours of interviewing .
The theme of the movie is Jim’s transition from a base ball player to a singer and the love story between Jim and Mary. There would have been one song by 'Jim Reeves' early in the movie.
the script is much shorter than the one for ‘Kimberley Jim’,
this may have been just a concept. But it gives an interesting sight into
the early days of Jim and Mary’s love.
