This is a 1950 film noir directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz.
It is an intense drama about racial hatred.
When a white patient in a hospital dies under the care of a black intern played
by Sidney Poitier, the victim's racist brother (Richard Widmark) seeks to destroy
the doctor's career.
Although the hospital's idealistic chief resident (Stephen McNally) tries to diffuse
the escalating tension, the victim's ex-wife (Linda Darnell) seems to go along with
the vengeance seeker until she realizes she's on the wrong side.
At the very end, the racisit psychopath seems to have suddenly changed
into a remorseful person.
Although the acting of both Poitier and Widmark is superb, the final scene looks quite contrived and seems unbelievable.

Probably the best of the anti-racism films of the 1940s and 1950s, thanks to Joe Mankiewicz and film noir. Starring Sidney Poitier as the put-upon doctor, Linda Darnell as the heroic babe, and Richard Widmark as the scum of the earth. Worth replaying for Eddie Muller's rambunctious commentary track.
