It's more a drama than a thriller. It takes place in a little California community, where white and black people cohabit in quiet. The sheriff is black. I was surprised, as far as this movie is not a Blaxploitation one. Too soon, I think. Because it began two or three years later. Some of the lead characters are black, but not all of them.
It's an anti racist tale. The sheriff - Davis - makes an inquiry into a rape affair. And the rapist is a white man - Ross Martin himself, the mighty Wild Wild West Arthemus Gordon. His character is nearly as good as the one he had in EXPERIMENT IN TERROR. A nasty one. A f...racist you want to be punished. The study of characters is very good, and the acting too.
It deserves to be watched. Really. In the credit, the name of the director - David Lowell Rich - is shown only at the end of the movie. Not usual.
