    DE-film 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.

He has always been the true voice of country music, but I must admit that this biography is one of the greatest statements of True Christian Faith and what real and loving Christianity is. This is as beautiful as it gets, and it brought years to my eyes. There are many sinners who believe they are saints, but every Saint knows he is a sinner. Sums it up rather well, don't you think?

I remember going to Ireland and spending three months there but in my last week there I saw a flier that was advertising an amazing music festival there. Johnny Cash Bob Dylan Paul Simon and tons of others were there. I had to miss it but I had a recording of Johnny Cash from a interview about that concert and then he performed on the TV show but I noticed before I saw the advertisement they had been playing his music and Bob Dylans music as well as Paul Simon which was something I was explained that they do that for people who might not have had parents loving those songs from that time. I was told that I needed to know that both Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan came to Ireland as Americans but left converted Irish.

I believe, Johnny Cash singing by himself and strumming a guitar in his house, recorded with a home video camera, sounded better than anything any other artist can produce in a studio.

Heartbreaking & touching story of how his older brother Jack died. At such a young age, having the thought to insist to go to work as the family needed the money. Clearly both Cash brothers were amazing in their own way and gone to soon from this world. 😭

There are a lot of things that the Carter family and Johnny Cash keep secret. I would have divorced him. He strung around Vivian and ruined her life. He could have gotten a divorce. Cheating is worse. He cheated on June. I used to cry watching them together in Walk the Line. That was a facade and its no longer my fav movie anymore.

I hate country, but i love some of his songs. But, a lot of country singers obvioulsy didnt write their own lyrics. How can you sing about being in prison when you havent been there?? It makes the songs less authentic. They steal songs. Then it makes it look bad for country music in general. Theres people in WV and other apalachian people who sing about their real life. They sing about what they are going through. Its real and authentic. Johnny Cash and the Carter clan obvioulsy didnt write their own songs. Its like a slap on the face to the regular people

If you look up badass in the dictionary you will find a picture of Johnny Cash. Seems like when everyone went one way he went the opposite, doing what he wanted. Life lesson, when the masses go one way you shouldn't follow, be different and be good to people. I had the opportunity to go to Folsom Prison for work, when you go through the gate and it slams shut you know your in a prison, its like going back in time. Addiction crushes the soul, its a tough road to recovery but it is possible. Life is a journey and Johnny Cash rode it like no other.

Thank you for this excellent tribute to "The Man in Black". No glossing over the struggles of life. Simple. Pure. Everyone's struggles regardless of fame. It always strikes a chord when it's someone in the public's eye but resonates among all of us regardless of fame or fortune. Mr Cash was one in a million. R.I.P. Johnny knowing you were loved by many.

American Songs is my favorite stuff in the Cash discography. There's something he does with those songs, he managed to make them his songs while allowing the artists to own them too. I'd be tempted to play my songs like he did if he'd covered me.

As someone with YT Premium primarily so I could enjoy the Cobra Kai martial arts-drama series and avoid ads, I only just came across this video when going to my YouTube homepage. It's absolutely excellent, a well made biographical analysis of Johnny Cash. This is one video I'll be recommending friends watch: it's a superb adjunct to the movie made about his life starring Joaquin Phoenix, "Walk the Line". It's also nice to see YouTube producing some quality content which is desirable besides Premium cutting out ads.

In regards to the multiple comments asking where The Highwaymen and the 'Hurt' music videos are in all this, I feel that the focus of this excellent documentary is solely on Johnny Cash himself. Other than the artists listed and sampled in the section about his TV show, there's really no corroborations with other artists (other than the Carter Family of course). Also, there's not much here about his well-known song covers in his late career...most obviously his tremendous 'Hurt' cover and music video just before his death. They weren't overlooked so much as they did not fit into the narrative and theme of him and his personal musical, spiritual, and life journey. I may be wrong on all that, but it makes the most sense to me.

I started listening to Johnny Cash when I was 10. Two years after he died. I’m 26 now. Been playing guitar since I was 7. Been recently teaching myself to play his songs on guitar. I’ve already had a fascination for the color black. I hope to tell stories like him, but through Hip-Hop. I’ve had my own trials & seen death just like him. Carry guilt with certain things. I’ve been writing music for over 10 Years. This is inspirational.

Absolutely fantastic film of the legend, with faults laid bare, of Johnny Cash. If you are a fan of Johnny Cash, read the book by Robert Hilburn called "Johnny Cash-The Life". Singularly the best thing written about Johnny. If you wonder who he is, he's the guy in the glasses standing next to johnny in the photo taken at Folsom Prison seen at 2:32.

I'm 16 and I've grown up with Johnny Cash's songs. This documentary made me cry. At the end when his wheelchair is thrown into the water and you see the light, then its him singing we'll meet again, perfect ending. They encapsulated him so well in an hour and a half. "You could listen to a song and feel one way, but when you listen to Johnny sing it you would feel a completely different way."

This is an emotionally touching, honest, well put together documentary. Johnny Cash lived and survived a life of trial, tribulation, addiction, redemption, forgiveness and love in order to give us the most amazing musical legacy. This documentary presents in epic fashion (with his own words) the life of a very special, complicated, spiritual, sometimes troubled but humble and kind man who had many human faults but who gave much joy and happiness to the multitudes of people/fans around the world while continually fighting his own personal demons and darkness. We are also thankful for your “gift” Johnny, as we are thankful to be able to enjoy your music (even 17 years after your passing) and to be able to take comfort from your voice, your songs and your words during these very troubled times in 2020. Johnny, you are not and will not be forgotten - I looked at this documentary for the third time a few days ago on Sat Sept 12, 2020, on the 17th anniversary of Johnny’s passing and appreciated it even more this time around. Thank you to all Johnny’s children for being wonderful stewards of their father, especially John Carter and Rosanne. RIP Johnny and June.
