      Comments about this product:

      This is a dark drama. Spencer Tracy arrives in Black Rock. He is a WWII veteran, to visit for a reason of his own. This town has a secret and want this one-arm man to leave now, while he can.

      But, Spencer is stubborn. They harass and endanger him, pick fights. Robert Ryan is the ring leader. Ernest Borgnine and Lee Marvin are henchmen. Others just obey to avoid Ryan. They have made it plain he his leaving in a pine box. Some of the other stars that help fill the cast are Anne Francis, Walter Brennan and Dean Jagger.

      Will Spencer leave alive? What is the town secret? Why did Spencer come? Please, watch the end of the movie. It was certainly a bad day!

      This movie also has a story moral about Japanese-Americans about WWII treatment. Learn some history! Watch it first, then decide at what age a juvenile may see this Violence.

        I bought this DVD for my son-in-law who had just vacationed near the place the film was shot. He loved it! Now he is searching out other movies and movie stars from the same location.
