Daltry Calhoun is a 2005 film, written and directed by Katrina Holden Bronson and starring Johnny Knoxville as the lead character Daltry Calhoun and Sophie Traub as his estranged daughter. Famed director Quentin Tarantino is one of the film's executive producers.

The plot involves small town Tennessee and the character Daltry Calhoun who is wrestling for control over his fading golf club and is reunited with his estranged daughter, a 14-year-old musical prodigy. Its setting, Ducktown is a small town located in the Appalachian Mountains of south eastern Tennessee along the border with North Carolina. The film was shot in Maury County, Tennessee, though there are no mountains in the locale.

Quentin Tarantino had very little input to this film due to personal issues at the time, but most of his influence can be seen where Daltry's issues with the prized grass come to resolution and the movie draws to an end.
