Racial tension-fueled drama stars Jim Brown as the newly and narrowly elected sheriff of a small Southern town whose every move is under scrutiny from both sides of the community's racial divide. Brown's predecessor (George Kennedy) and the mayor (Fredric March) help him maintain a tenuous peace...but when he hauls in the scion of a wealthy white family on a hit-and-run, all hell threatens to erupt. Lynn Carlin, Don Stroud co-star; directed by Ralph Nelson ("Lilies of the Field"). 97 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
