This is the story of a black man who has been elected sheriff in a U.S. southern county, due to the vote of blacks. He receives a huge amount of hostility from the non-tolerant white establishment, making his job very hard. The white former sheriff has his own struggle, as he balances his devotion to the law with his family and community relations. Things come to a head when the black sheriff puts a white man, the son of a wealthy land-owner of a neighboring county, in jail, and his daddy comes after him. Everyone around has to decide where their values really lie.Written by

When the sheriff goes to arrest the rapist, he gets into a fight with the rapist and two of his friends. He is able to knock out the 2 friends with one punch each, yet the rapist takes 10 or 12 punches before he is subdued. The 2 friends remain conveniently unconscious until the rapist is cuffed.

It's the last day for small town Sheriff John Little (George Kennedy) in the deep south. He's been voted out as the negro population help elect Jimmy Price (Jim Brown). A couple of arrests threaten to set the simmering racial tension to a boil.
Jim Brown is a limited actor. He's help by the great George Kennedy. The white kid is good villain material. The movie doesn't need the balancing from the black prisoner. It's more compelling to concentrate on the Braddock kid. The black prisoner seems to be there only to show Jimmy's impartiality. There is potential for higher tension and more intense confrontations. There are comedic tones which are ill-fitting. All in all, I like the feel of the characters and their reactions to their situations.
