Although Orville H. Hampton is credited as screenwriter along with Raphael Hayes, Hayes stated in an interview that he had never worked with Hampton on the script and in fact had never even met him. Hampton was assigned to write the script by producer/director Larry Peerce, and according to Hayes, Peerce thought Hampton's script was so awful that he ditched it and hired Hayes to rewrite it. However, after arbitration, the Writers Guild of America (WGA) ruled that Hampton's name should be in the credits as co-screenwriter. See more »
I saw this movie in the mid-60s in a theater and the last scene was heart-wrenching. I felt like I had been hit by a baseball bat. Several years later I saw the movie on TV and was surprised to find that, as that final scene approached, I could feel the same emotions building. The movie had not lost its effect! I would love to watch this movie again to see if it would have the same impact. It would be interesting if young people today would see the power of this film or if, because "things have changed," the story line would seem outdated. Apparently this film is NOT available on video, unfortunately. I wonder why? Who makes that decision?
