Perhaps more noted for its behind-the-scenes saga than the stir it created on the screen, director Otto Preminger's scorching drama set in the 1940s tells the story of a bigoted Georgia landgrabber (Michael Caine) who tries to force the sale of two plots of land to him by his cousin and a black sharecropper. Caine's hostile takeover attempt results in a racially progressive pushback. Adapted from the K.B. Gilden novel; Jane Fonda, John Phillip Law, Diahann Carroll, Faye Dunaway, and Burgess Meredith co-star. 142 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English.
