Movie Info

Randy Quaid plays the mayor of a small town in Alberta. Quaid also doubles as a the local high school history teacher, and it is in this capacity that he poses a threat to housewife Lindsay Wagner. Ms. Wagner takes a peek at her teenaged son's classroom notes, and comes to the correct conclusion that Quaid is espousing a philosophy of anti-Semitism. She is successful in having Quaid removed from his teaching job, but finds herself blocked by her own neighbors in getting Quaid ousted as mayor. Standing her ground against community hostility and physical threats, Wagner takes Quaid to court, hoping to exercise the Canadian laws against promoting race hatred. Based on a true story, the made-for-TV Evil in Clear River is a frightening glance at what can happen when "revisionist history" is filtered through the mind of a bigot.
