Storyline

Following the Second World War, a northern cannery combine negotiates for the purchase of a large tract of uncultivated Georgia farmland. The major portion of the land is owned by Julie Ann Warren and has already been optioned by her unscrupulous, draft dodging husband, Henry. Now the combine must also obtain two smaller plots - one owned by Henry's cousin Rad McDowell, a combat veteran with a wife and family; the other by Reeve Scott, a young black man whose mother had been Julie's childhood Mammy. But neither Rad nor Reeve is interested in selling and they form an unprecedented black and white partnership to improve their land. Although infuriated by the turn of events, Henry remains determined to push through the big land deal. And when Reeve's mother Rose dies, Henry tries to persuade his wife to charge Reeve with illegal ownership of his property, confident the the bigoted Judge Purcell will rule against a Negro.

Goofs

When Henry calls Higgins at the general store to stop the dynamiting of Rad and Reeve's land, the lighting in the store changes. When Higgins answers the phone, the store is dimly lit. When the camera cuts to Henry and then back to Higgins, the lighting is almost bright daylight. After the camera cuts to Henry and then a final time to Higgins, the lighting has dimmed again.

Film Well Worth Watching...
16 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I tend to disagree with most reviewers. Most of the reviews here have been less than favorable. I, however, enjoyed it. This film depicted more racial realism in that era than it is given credit for. As a previous reviewer stated, "tells it like it is/was". It kept me interested until the very end. I first saw this on television in 1971 and never forgot it. When VCR's were produced for homes, I searched for this movie. I finally found it to purchase a few years ago. I count this movie as one of my favorites of the sixties.

Although the "sax" scene may have been a bit overplayed, I can relate to the couple's marital tension. Fonda's acting was good throughout.

I recommend this.
