The Biddle brothers, shot while robbing a gas station, are taken to the prison ward of the county hospital.  Ray Biddle, a rabid racist, wants no treatment from black resident Dr. Luther Brooks.  When brother John dies while Luther tries to save him, Ray is certain it's murder and becomes obsessed with vengeance.  But there are black racists around too, and the situation slides rapidly toward violence.

"This film noir is really edgy and intense.  It's hard to believe that this movie came out in 1950 before the civil rights movement took hold in this country." ~Laurie~

Caution:  This is an angry racially intense drama with strong racial epithets used throughout.

This movie is not rated.

This movie is free to the public and all are welcome.
