Thread: "But what is her ethnicity?" - Johnny Cash's first wife, Vivian Liberto

    Here's an interesting article in her local newspaper Ventura County when she wrote the book. She met him when she was 17. When he came out of the military several years later they were married. They were married for 11 years. She had four children with him. She blamed his drug addiction and June Carter for the collapse of their marriage. She was there with him from the early years. It must have been hell to be written out of his life as being anyone of significance, in the shadow of the June and Johnny love story. She was very upset in how they portrayed her in the movie.

    She looks gorgeous. I'd forgotten he had a first wife.

    Well, knowing this now makes me irritated that they portrayed her as lily white in the movie Walk the Line. I am surprised the Black community didn't pitch a fit about it, but like me, they probably didn't know. Still, SOMEbody connected to the dang movie knew and should've cast at least a bi-racial actress. Gennifer Goodwin is not bi-racial, at least to my knowledge.

    There were a lot of inaccuracies in that movie. "Walk the Line" was written for Vivian, but you'd think June was the inspiration. Of course they had to make it the great love story, not a homewreckin' tale.
