Movie Info

Frustrated by his inability to help an African-American patient who hates whites, a psychiatrist (Peter Falk) asks his superior (Sidney Poitier) to release him from the case. The superior relates a case from his own past during World War II when he treated a young Nazi (Bobby Darin) who despised blacks. Explaining the tragic results of the case, the older psychiatrist encourages his younger colleague not to be swayed by the patient's attitude, to remain objective and to stick with his treatment.

  • Feb 07, 2009
    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. *<i>NOTE</i>: Bobby Darin shines in a very unsympathetic role.

    Not a bad film but a little too melodramatic. What makes this film interesting is how disturbing and dark the flashbacks are. Poitier is good as always but a suprise performance from Bobby Darin.
