This was Bobby Darin's fourth film and perhaps the best in his brief career.

Mostly dull except when the volatile Darin was on the screen and created real tension.

A 'stylized' presentation of racism that says a little more about the enormous talents of Sidney Poitier than it does about the ignorance of inequality and bigotry.

*NOTE: Bobby Darin shines in a very unsympathetic role.
