 James Mangold - “People don't remember how good the music was (back then)... There's some real blood and guts in that music.”
 James Mangold - “The big thing that I wanted to do was touch on the very start of rock and roll, I loved this moment in rockabilly music. I loved the idea of people making music because they loved music and not because they saw the video or how to market themselves. A very big point for me in this movie is that John didn't arrive at Sun as the man in black. He didn't already know his marketing angle. He didn't have it worked out.

 James Mangold - “It was unbelievably hard to get this done, ... Over the years, Johnny understood. He was patient beyond belief.

 James Mangold - “I knew I wanted to make a movie about Johnny Cash since '96, but my first exposure to Cash was the live Folsom Prison album on my dad's shelf, ... I saw Cash's incredibly ravaged face with a rivulet of sweat running down his cheek on the cover. And when I listened to it, I heard all these men cheering - guys in prison.
