"The Sound of Anger"'s shooting title was "The Adversarys" and was a pilot for a series which eventually became "The Bold Ones". The only character, in the proposed continuing cast, to make it to the series was Burl Ives.
It was the first TV Movie based on a true story and had the nerve to take a swipe at right wing politics controlling the justice system in Orange County which is referred to in the film as "Citrus County".
The Roy Hugins script is smart and involving. Michael Richy's direction and editing is inventive and exciting. The sound, photography and music are a 10.
Burl Ives is wonderful and David Macklin and Linda Day George make a terrific MacBeth like couple. Macklin has a strident scene near the end that really scores.
This film is still fresh and cogent today.
