Summary
"Years of police work have taught Detective Finlay that where there's crime, there's motive. But he finds no usual motive when investigating the beating death of a man. The man was killed because he was a Jew. 'Hate', Finlay says, 'is like a gun.' ... Edward Dmytryk...directs, draping the genre's stylistic backdrops and flourishes around a topic rarely before explored in films: anti-Semitism in the U.S. Here, Hollywood took aim at injustice ... and caught bigotry in a Crossfire."--Container
