Plot Outline:

A one-handed man steps off the train in the small town of Black Rock, where the locals are less than helpful with strangers. Being refused a hotel room and a rental car - he knows the town is hiding a secret. When he mentions his purpose is to speak to a Japanese-American farmer, Kamoko, it opens up old wounds the town would rather forget - even if it means taking care of the problem with extreme force. -- Chris Kavan

Rating of

A one-armed Spencer Tracy in one of the great ass-kicking roles, as he uncovers a conspiracy of silence in a small town. An intelligent examination of prejudice with yet another brilliant performance by Tracy.

Rating of

A uniquely brooding mystery - more of a slow burn than a quick-paced thriller. Tracy gives a nuanced and commanding performance without losing his usual colloquial joviality.
