Storyline

In a Dixie small-town, the late sheriff was quite content to preside over a truly segregated community. There the rich brothers, Harlan and Mason Davis, are lords. His successor, Word War II veteran Frank Richards, has a more modern view on justice and equality, which doesn't help his social acceptance anywhere. He also has doubts about the mysterious masked 'peg-leg' to whom all murders where ascribed. Harlan is shot after an african-american boy threats him with a gun to stop his old-fashioned 'liberalities'. Frank and the prosecutor's retired dad, agree to act as defense council, investigate, cued by the boy's Caucasian playmate, Luke Winter, and turn both case and town around. Written by KGF Vissers

I thought the film was great!
3 April 2001 | by DuaneyBoy15See all my reviews

Duane McLaughlin, the kid who played Sonny Monroe did a really good job! I believe that he truly captured the essence of an African American boy who had to deal with many problems at such a young age. Dean Cain, better known as "Superman" from the Lois and Clark Adventures also did a good job.

Best of Luck- Charles

PS.

As a young actor myself, I could truly appreciate his work.
