Powerful Black Guest cast feature in Topical Race based story...
4 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Spoiler Alert !

A 'Tony Franciosa' segment episode.

Star Reporter of 'People' magazine Jeff Dillon (Tony Franciosa) becomes involved in a conflict of strong Racial tensions following a murder of a young Black man when those behind a Black Radical group and paper known as 'The Black Answer' seem clearly to be somehow involved....

A powerful guest cast of strong Black actors enhance this (then) very topically Race based story, where good and bad people of all creeds and colour are depicted.

Jeff Dillon's dogged pursuit of the truth and his razor sharp mind finally reveals the real killer....and an apparently guilty suspect on the verge of being hunted down like an animal ... is revealed to be an innocent man and cleared at the end.
