Defiant Ones, The


USA 1958, 96 minutes, B/W
Dir. Stanley Kramer
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Classics, Suspense/Crime / Prison

Topics: Indigenous & Minority Cultures.


Aroview: That well known image of race-hatred - escaped black and white prisoners unwillingly handcuffed together - originated here, with jailbirds Tony Curtis and Sidney Poitier sharing bracelets.

The 'messages' now seem a little overt, but the laidback pacing, quirky humour and oddball Southern characters make this a vivid watch still.
