Top Critic Reviews
Fresh: 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.
- Bosley Crowther, New York Times, Tuesday, May 20, 2003
Rotten: An action film for people who don't like action films.
- Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader, Friday, March 27, 2009
Fresh: Superb, if it weren't, as we said, for the too-obvious liberal teachings that interrupt the terrific ation.
- Enrique Fernandez, Miami Herald, Thursday, February 17, 2005
I am amazed that this film doesn't get the cred that it deserves. One that belongs in the great film anthologies about racism.

A tough hard-edged and suspenseful drama with a powerhouse cast lead by Spencer Tracy in a superlative Oscar nominated performance as John J. Macreedy a World War II veteran with a crippled left arm, who comes to the tiny California desert town of Black Rock, one very hot summer day in 1945. Macreedy wants to find a Japanese farmer and give to him the medal won by son, who saved his life and was killed in action.
