A pioneering film about racial tensions, No Way Out stars Richard Widmark as a criminal named Ray Biddle, who despises African-Americans. Sidney Poitier (in his screen debut) is the black doctor, Luther Brooks, assigned to take care of the wounded Ray. Dr. Brooks, hired by the police hospital as part of an overall program to integrate the staff, keeps his temper in check as Ray spouts his racist invective. When Ray's brother, also wounded, dies in the hospital, the blustering bigot holds Dr.

No Way Out borrows the template for socially conscious filmmaking from both Gentlemen's Agreement and Crossfire: it's half noir, half sermon.

Audience Reviews for No Way Out

Richard Widmark is a "Negro-Hater" who blames Sidney Poitier for his brother's death. Intense but stylized social commentary featuring a rather nice performance by Miss Linda Darnell.

A really good movie, it's both a serious drama focused on racism and the medical profession, and an exciting thriller with criminals. Poitier and Widmark give great performances.

Three top performances by the leads and a provocative topic make this a very worthwhile viewing experience.
