Item Number:
HBO D91570D
101 min.
Closed Caption:
Based on the novel by Ernest J. Gaines, this powerful feature is set in the south during the 1940s, when racism was as widespread in the legal system as in the rest of society. A poorly educated young man is convicted of a murder he did not commit and sentenced to death. His losing, white defense attorney put up an argument that the boy was as dumb as an animal and therefore not responsible. It is left to a proud, black schoolteacher to give the boy back his pride and dignity before the state takes his life. With Cicely Tyson, Mekhi Phifer and Irma P. Hall. Made for television. Nominated for seven Emmy Awards.
