Johnny Cash in “Door-to-Door Maniac,” a.k.a. “Five Minutes to Live”
Johnny Cash in “Door-to-Door Maniac,” a.k.a. “Five Minutes to Live” He’s going to murder you… but first, psychopathic Johnny Cash is going to sing to you! There may be no better example of casting against type for a figure who would go on to be beloved by tens of millions of Americans, unless it’s Ronald Reagan as a mobster in “The Killers.” Cash would write in her memoirs about how hopped up he was on pills in those days, and you can believe it in his wired performance as a merciless sociopath in this lurid, no-budget 1961 potboiler.
