Walk the Line

walk-the-line.jpgOne of my favorite movies lately is Walk the Line. HBO has been repeating it, and I keep watching over and over. Sometimes for the wonderful music. Sometimes for the fine acting. But mostly for the love story.

It’s the old Nora Roberts fantasy, come to life. The heroine, in this case June Carter, might have perfectly good reasons for saying no. And she does. She can be mean, sometimes even rude. But the hero, in this case Johnny Cash, is not deterred. He just keeps on comin’, pressing his suit, until he wins her. Nora Roberts has made a career of writing this fantasy in her romance novels; and this movie shows it come true in real life. After he won her, Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash were happily married for over 32 years, raising their children and touring the world together, making music. When June passed in 2003, Johnny followed her four months later.  

Awwww, doesn’t it just make you melt into a puddle of goo?

  1. Oooh, I’ve never seen this. In fact, I can’t remember the last time I saw a good love story. Oh, wait…it was You’ve Got Mail, which tells you how long it’s been. I’ve got HBO, so I’ll have to check it out (after NaNo). Thanks for the tip! 😀

  2. This is a great movie and I LOVE that it’s a true story. Those two were so dedicated to each other – it DOES make me want to melt into a puddle of goo. LOL
