  • Mob mentality exposed

    • Will Fox
    • 3/16/15

    The State government's purposeful neglect led a lynch mob to try, condemn and punish an innocent man, burning him to death by burning down their town's jail, after beating their own elected sheriff unconscious. Then the crazed, blood-thirsty mob attacked their deputies. Worse yet, the frenzied mob then assaulted their own innocent, volunteer fire department members and destroyed their town's FD rescue equipment, chopping up fire hoses with axes. Hysterical mob emotions destroyed reason. Serial sinners, after the "heat-of-the-moment" excuse passed, weeks later, 22 members of the mob, clearly identified individuals on newsreel film, soberly perjure themselves after repeated cautions by officers of the court. Psychosis reigned. Justice delayed, justice denied. In the previous 45 years, mobs lynched, (usurping legal authority to try, condemn and punish), more than 6,000 American citizens. Understanding mobs can involve 100s of people, but to conservatively calculate their impact, surmise that at least five adults perpetrated each of these vigilante crimes. Five perpetrators per crime times 6,000 victims multiplies to 30,000 criminals. Yet only 12 perps were brought to trial. Vigilantes committed gross injustices. Because each vigilante has two parents and each vigilante's victim has two parents, plus each vigilante and victim have cousins, aunts and uncles, the vigilantes' victims multiply to tens of thousands of Americans. For more mob mentality, see Henry Fonda's favorite film: The Oxbow Incident.

    The problem with this film, of course, is that in the middle of a powerful anti lynching movie, Fritz Lang and Norman Krasna, for reasons known only to themselves, decide they would rather make an anti revenge movie. You can almost hear the tires screeching as one film abruptly halts, when Spencer Tracy's character returns from the dead, and the other film shoots off in another direction. And, by so doing, Lang ends up with watered down versions of both movies, as could have been predicted. Spencer Tracy, as if sensing this bad dramatic decision, is much less effective in the anti revenge movie, doing some of the only overacting in his career (communicating his Fury by snarling and yelling, stuff that this consummate "less is more" actor usually scorned.) At least he's better than Sylvia Sydney, who is bland throughout. The last scene, where she kisses a magically cured of spite Tracy, in court, is truly lame. Give it a B minus for the first movie, which contains images of a crazed mob that are still disturbing to watch. P.S. Lynching was an especially nasty scourge among African Americans in the first half of the twentieth century. So what does Hollywood, in its wisdom, do? Make its two most famous anti lynching movies of that time period, this one and "Ox Bow Incident," about white (and one Hispanic) victims. I'm sure the irony was not lost among African American audiences.

    Spencer Tracy gives one of his most powerful dramatic performances in this story of an unjustly imprisoned man and the crazed lynch mob trying to kill him. He escapes from the jail, and the effect of his obsession for revenge is shown on the woman he loves and his brothers. At the end, after everyone beleived he was dead, he walks into court and tells how his faith in humanity and the American justice system has been shaken, and embraces and kisses his fiancee. Also the first American film directed by German-born Fritz Lang.
