“…[A] flammable tale of what happens in a scabrous Southern town when a vicious, young rabble-rouser comes in and tries to block integration in the schools.” The New York Times, 1962. Too raw for its release in 1962, this chilling portrayal of racist mob violence is regarded by Roger Corman as his most important film.
Please note: The film may be difficult to watch for some viewers as the depiction of racism is raw and the N-word is used casually throughout the film. TFS has chosen to screen the film due to the importance of the theme and it’s relevance to events happening today.
