    Well, there you go. Thanks, Linda. One can't even read movie reviews without having to read political hogwash.And thanks for your review of the movie which somehow you neglected to post. So thanks for correcting Steve.Edge of the City is a great movie from a great filmmaker, John Cassavetes. I watch it whenever it's on.

    Steve, there is a saying, "We see things NOT as they are, but as WE are." When you sum all criticism of a black President up to racism, it is you, sir, who is being a racist. If you want to see real prejudice, check out the venom spewed onto black conservatives....by black liberals. If we really want racism to die, we need to allow people to criticize a black person's policies just as we would a white person's and not pull out the race card with every breath. We also need to allow blacks to become conservatives without treating them as though they were some sort of traitor for not being liberals. To assume that all criticism is as a result of racism, is to "illegitimize" the subject of racism, itself. I couldn't care less what color our President is....what I do care about is that he or she not take us down the road to bankruptcy, as this President is on the path to do. I was so hopeful when our President was first elected, but I've never been so disappointed by anyone in my life. If that is racism, then I see no future for this country to ever be anywhere close to being free of it.

    great movie!!! I love that this was 1957, but most of us whites remember race being the "issue of the '60's" this movie is dealing with social items that did not become mainstream issues for years. Cutting edge film that still delivers a message today, with all the racist prejudice directed at our president.

  • terrific rare gem

    Black and white honest movie, Portier and Cassavetes at their early best! Jack Warden is great as the villian. Realism in 50's is refreshing. Everyone should take a look.

  • Absolute Must

    One of the all-time best movies!In the American Masters program about Cassavetes,one of the great directors cites this masterpiece as his inspiration.It should be available. I myself will buy a copy for each member of my family.I have long wondered why this life-shaping movie wasn't available. And wouldn't you know -- it's airing as I watch, and I have to work!
