The life of the "Bondurant Brothers" was depicted in the movie Lawless, written by Jack Bondurant's grandson, Matt Bondurant, a novelist and creative writing teacher at the University of Dallas.

Matt never got a chance to ask his grandfather about his life, so he decided to write it as fiction. He relied mostly on newspaper articles and court transcripts which provide a scattered picture.

The film was set in 1931 during Prohibition when moonshine was shipped out of the county to large cities; the Bondurant brothers stand up to a violent special agent from Chicago who demands a large take of their moonshine profits. Read more about the film at The Franklin News-Post.

In the film, Forrest routinely cheats death and the idea that the Bondurants are immortal was presented, though at the end of the film, he died of pneumonia.

Jack, the youngest of the three died on Monday, November 6, 2000 in Memorial Hospital of Martinsville and Henry County. Howard on the other hand silently joined Forrest in peace in 1968 at the age of 70.
