Thomas Ian Griffith,
In a Dixie small-town, the late sheriff was quite content to preside over a truly segregated community. There the rich brothers, Harlan and Mason Davis, are lords. His successor, Word War II veteran Frank Richards, has a more modern view on justice and equality, which doesn't help his social acceptance anywhere. He also has doubts about the mysterious masked 'peg-leg' to whom all murders where ascribed. Harlan is shot after an african-american boy threats him with a gun to stop his old-fashioned 'liberalities'. Frank and the prosecutor's retired dad, agree to act as defense council, investigate, cued by the boy's Caucasian playmate, Luke Winter, and turn both case and town around. Written by
The whole cast admirably put across what i imagine was a difficult time in U.S. history, i.e. the 'race' issue in the 50's. The friendship between Sonny and Luke was central to the story in that they only saw friendship and not "colour". Being a Dean Cain fan i was anxious to see how he would play the sheriff but i was not disappointed as he showed the sheriff to be a fair in his dealings with everyone in the town. It showed Dean's love of history in that he really believed in this role. He came across as a person who does not see "colour" himself.
Yes a very enjoyable film.
