Description by OLDIES.com:
Oscar winner Sidney Poitier sizzles in an "electrifying role" (Show Business Illustrated
) as a prison psychiatrist who clashes with a racist inmate (Bobby Darin) in this "explosive and provocative" (Citizen News
) drama that "packs a powerful wallop" (LA Herald Examiner
A prison doctor is charged with treating a hate-filled young man who's been jailed for sedition. As he probes the patient's nightmares, the psychiatrist realizes his twisted visions mask a lust for violence. But the inmate has become a model prisoner, and unless the doctor can convince officials that he's dangerous, he'll soon be back on the street.
Racial tension heats up when a conservative black prison psychiatrist is assigned to treat a staunch racist and former Nazi party member.
- This film marks the second teaming of director Stanley Kramer and actor Sidney Poitier.
