The white town fathers immediately declare that the attacker had to be black, and place the blame on Garth, a young black man. Assuming that the men in white sheets aren't intent on holding a fair and impartial trial, Garth takes to the woods as the Klansmen lynching party hunts him down. Written by

Shot in the Californian town of Oroville which was thrilled to host a big studio production. That elation swiftly disappeared when the townspeople saw the finished product which was universally derided by the local inhabitants who felt it did their town no favors whatsoever. See more »
Extremely embarrassing film that kept having me ask what the whole point of it was. A white woman (Linda Evans) is raped and the local rednecks and white trash thinks it has to be a black man so the Klan murder one who happens to be innocent. Garth (O.J. Simpson) decides to take revenge by killing off Klan members one by one, which puts the Sheriff (Lee Marvin) in a tough spot. Richard Burton plays a black supporter while Cameron Mitchell plays a Klan member. The history behind this filmfrom Sam Fuller walking off the picture to Marvin and Burton being so drunk they don't remember making itare a lot more interesting than the film we get. The thing is mean spirited, full of stereotypes and one has to wonder why a black man would produce a thing like this, which at the time was the most expensive black production. The scene where the church kicks out Evans because she's had a black man in her, at no fault of her own, is downright disgusting. Both Marvin and Burton are incredibly bad here and it's clear both of them are drunk throughout the film. Burton is suppose to be playing a war vet with a bad leg yet which is the bad leg switches from scene to scene. The version of the film I watched was the TV cut, which is the public domain copy. Paramount holds the rights to the theatrical cut, which contains a more graphic rape and violence so it'll be interesting to see if they release this due to the subject matter and cast. The only reason I don't give this a BOMB rating is due to all the unintentional laughs. The kung fu fight between Burton and Mitchell is worth sitting through this one.
