Case with Cover
directed this star-studded adaptation of K.B.
Gliden's novel about racial prejudice and emotional unrest in the
Deep South. Henry Warren (
) is a land owner obsessed with buying up all
available land in a Georgia farming town. However, two parcels of
land have escaped his reach, and he's determined to get them. The
Scotts, an African-American family, own one of the lots that Henry
is after; the matriarch of the family, Rose (
), used to work as a servant for the family of
Henry's wife, Julie Ann (
), so Henry sends Julie Ann to talk with her.
However, not only doesn't Rose agree to sell, she gets so upset
that she dies of a heart attack, and soon her headstrong son Reeve
) is the owner of the land. Reeve refuses all of
Henry's offers to sell out, and he even stands up to a racist lynch
mob that tries to ransack his farm; when Henry attempts to prove
that Reeve holds no legal deed to the property, Vivian Thurlow
), the town's black schoolmarm, is able to provide
the documentation that the Scotts do indeed own their land.
Meanwhile, Henry is also trying to buy some property farmed by Rod
John Phillip Law
) and his wife Lou (Faye Dunnaway), a poor white
couple who are Henry's cousins. The McDowell farm adjoins that
owned by the Scotts, so Reeve and Rod agree to join forces against
Henry, which leads to violent reprisals against them. While set in
