Review by Bruce Thompson, Sr. (posted on 4-Sep-2007)

This movie is amazing. It realistically reveals the common man's fear of the unknown. William Shatner is very convining as a Racist, and the other actors too. Had I saw this movie earlier in life I would not have been so wounded by it when confronted by it. This movie truly carries the dark feeling of unfair prejudging. The only part I cannot get is the fairy tale ending. No white woman's virtuosity would have been trashed for a man of color in 1962, Besides ths "unrealism" the movie was very enjoyable. Bruce Thompson, Sr.
