The Baron and the Kid (1984)





Movie Info

The "Baron", played by Johnny Cash, is a legendary pool shark. The "Cajun Kid", played by Greg Webb, is the Baron's long-lost son. Once they're reunited, the Baron and the Kid embark upon numerous adventures, each exploit bringing them closer. Based on Johnny Cash's hit song "The Baron", this made-for-TV endeavor is a blatant attempt to rope the fans of Kenny Rogers' similar TV-movie project The Gambler. Costarring June Carter Cash and Tracy Pollan, The Baron and the Kid premiered November 21, 1984.
