John Sturges's macho B-picture is more brawn than brains...but what brawn!
An action film for people who don't like action films.
Considerable excitement is whipped up in this suspense drama, and fans who go for tight action will find it entirely satisfactory.
Nicely put together by Sturges, its suspense derives largely from the excellent performances and imaginative use of the 'Scope frame by cameraman William C Mellor.
Superb, if it weren't, as we said, for the too-obvious liberal teachings that interrupt the terrific ation.
Slowly, through a process of guarded discourse, which Director John Sturges has built up by patient, methodical pacing of his almost completely mate cast, an eerie light begins to glimmer.
I think it's really great the way it addresses the way small communities and isolated communities close in on themselves to protect ugliness.
This was an early CinemaScope film, and William Mellor frames it all beautifully. It's an outstanding thriller.
Famous suspense film, with a history lesson and Civil Rights message.
Serves as a moralizing Hollywood lecture on racial prejudice against Japanese-Americans during World War II.
Fabulous 1955 Spencer Tracy story of prejudice.
a portrait of American distrust leading into the potent paranoia of the Cold War
Racial bigotry is at the heart of this small town drama as a stranger comes to town looking for someone who isn't there. Tracy is his usual Rock-of-Gibraltar lead as the returning vet looking for the father of a fellow serviceman, but the supporting cast make this a full meal of anxious tension. There's a fight scene, too, that'll surprise you.
A pretty good suspense movie with Tracy, it has it's good moments, but it also has boring moments.
Great vehicle for Spencer Tracy that plays on post WWII anti-Japanese sentiment. Terrific cast includes Tracy, Walter Brennan, Ernest Borgnine and Lee Marvin.
Modern western about a one-armed stranger who comes to the tiny town of Black Rock in 1945 in search of a man. Immediately he is harassed by the townsfolk. But why are they so hostile? What dark secret lies at the heart of this seemingly nondescript town? The unsurprising answer was perhaps cutting-edge for 1954, but it's rather overused today. Self important message movie is tense and well acted, however. Oscar nominated for Best Actor, Director and Screenplay.
