Nerve-snapping tension, gritty style and an unsparing look at racial tension unite in this "thunderbolt of a film" (Los Angeles Examiner) from four-time Oscar winner Robert Wise and writers Abraham Polonsky and Nelson Gidding. Harry Belafonte, Robert Ryan, Shelley Winters and Ed Begley deliver "superb" (Hollywood Citizen Herald) performances in this "absorbing ... taut crime melodrama" (Variety).

One hundred and fifty thousand dollars, ready for the taking. It's too much to resist for bigoted ex-con Earl Slater (Ryan). He agrees to take part in a bank robbery with former cop Burke (Begley) - but hesitates when he finds out that one of his partners (Belafonte) is black. As tensions mount and the man get closer to their biggest score ever, Earl's hatred erupts, resulting in violent consequences for the heist... and their lives.
