Trivia

Partially based on the true story of the 1944 execution in the electric chair of George Junius Stinney, Jr., a 14-year-old African-American boy convicted of the rape and murder of two young white girls in South Carolina. He is, as of 2012, the youngest person ever executed in the US. See more »

Solving crimes of the past......
24 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Lou Gossett heads a strong cast in this solidly stereotyped Southern murder investigation. What makes "Carolina Skeletons" unique is the logical unraveling of a 30 year old conspiracy, that protected the real killer of two little girls. Gossett's brother was hanged for a crime he did not commit, and there are plenty of suspects to eliminate, including a very active KKK. Bruce Dern is especially effective in a pivotal role as sheriff. The violence is somewhat subdued in favor of character development and a fine script. All in all an excellent example of race relations in the South, both 30 years ago and today. Recommended. - MERK
