Storyline

The fanatically uncompromising Len Rowan and his family insult and terrorize the citizens of a small town for years. One day the comment of a saleswoman about Len's son not being able to pay his sweets triggers off his persecution complex. As revenge for the believed insult, the whole family starts stalking the shop owner and her husband... until this escalates and the old man gets badly injured. Len is arrested, but gets off, free on bail. His clever attorney delays the court session for more than a year - while Rowan keeps threatening the witnesses. But then, the people feel they've had enough of this and decide to take the law in their own hands... Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

A very good movie
21 July 2002 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie on the TV a few years ago and can't imagine why it has never been on video or DVD. Its worthier than many other movies that are on either video and DVD. Brian Dennehy is one of my favorite movie stars and doesn't get enough credit for being the good actor he is. I thought "In Broad Daylight was one of his very best performances. He was so convincing as the bullying, intimidating and totally unsavory Len Rowan. When an actor can make you feel that he is really mean, then he is a good actor. Cloris Leachman was also very good in this movie as a store owner, threatened by Len Brian Dennehy. I wish it was on DVD, or even VHS would be fine. What a loss this is to video or DVD collectors.
