Entertainment Reviews:

USA Today - 02/06/1998
"...Uncommonly provocative for its day..."
New York Times - 03/07/2006
"[A] gutsy social melodrama....[Mankiewicz] unleashes a burst of expressionist brilliance like the complex tracking shot that begins just after the one-hour mark and draws a hellish portrait of a race riot in the making."

Description by

Nominated for the 1950 Oscar for Best Writing, Story and Screenplay, this intense drama about racial hatred pulls no punches. When a white patient in a hospital dies under the care of a black intern (Sidney Poitier), this victim's racist brother (Richard Widmark) seeks to destroy the doctor's career. Although the hospital's idealistic chief resident (Stephen McNally) tries to diffuse the escalating tension, the victim's ex-wife (Linda Darnell) seems to go along with the vengeance seeker - until she realizes she's on the wrong side.

Plot Synopsis:

When a young black doctor fails to save a gangster's brother who is suffering from gunshot wounds, the bigoted honcho orchestrates a string of race riots and slayings as his means of revenge. A provocative melodrama featuring the debut film performances of Sydney Poitier and Ossie Davis, the film also stars Ruby Dee and Richard Widmark, and was directed and written by Joseph L. Mankiewicz, who along with Lesser Samuels, received an Academy Award nomination for the screenplay.
