Synopsis / Plot
Ex cop Dave Burke (Ed Begley) is looking to hire two men to assist him in a bank raid: Earl Slater (Robert Ryan), a white and racist ex-convict, and Johnny Ingram (Harry Belafonte), a black gambler and singer. Both are reluctant; but Burke arranges for Ingram's creditors to put pressure on him, while Slater feels humiliated by his failure to provide for his girl-friend; they eventually accept. But Slater loathes and despises blacks, and the tensions in the gang rapidly mount.
