Editorial Reviews

Ralph Nelson, director of Lilies of the Field, returns to the subject of race relations in America for a thoroughly different take in Tick...Tick...Tick.... Tensions are taken off the back-burner slow simmer and are placed on full boil in Tick...Tick...Tick...'s tale of a black Southern sheriff trapped between the rock and a hard place of two communities separated by skin color and decades of bigotry. Newly elected, Sheriff Jimmy Price (Jim Brown) offers no favors or privileges to either community, and quickly earns the ire of both. Warned by the mayor against consulting outsiders (the great Fredric March in his penultimate film performance), Price navigates the tensions until one arrest places him directly in the eye of a hurricane of hate. With only the former sheriff to support him (George Kennedy) Price must try to defuse the tensions before the town explodes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid entertainment. August 16, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I remember watching this movie at the theater when I was in high school during the 70's. Growing up in the deep south, I could identify with Jim Price character played by Jim Brown. The overall theme throughout the movie was just a guy trying to do his job in a hostile environment with little or no help. The background music was a bit too "folksy" for me, but the acting is top-notch by Jim Brown, George Kennedy, and Fredrick March. Listening to March trying to do a southern accent was hilarious. I recorded this movie off my local television station back in the 90's. I was glad to find it was on DVD. The DVD transfer was a good as it could be for a 40+ year old movie. I thought this movie was not as good as "In The Heat Of The Night" with Rod Steiger and Sidney Poitier, but very well done in any case.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie............. January 2, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Jim Brown and George Kennedy are great. Their characters are caught between both black AND white racism and I think it is done well. One of my all time favorite movies. Jim Brown fans will probably like "Dark of the Sun".

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally!! July 2, 2014
By dejer
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This was one of my Dad's favorite movies and until now, it could only be found on VHS. Unfortunately, my Dad passed away before I could get this for him on DVD. All the same, watching this movie brings back memories and I enjoyed it more than I can explain. I was expecting sub-par quality because I wasn't sure how well this older movie could transfer to DVD. But, the quality is simply wonderful! I wasn't able to purchase this in time for my Dad to enjoy, but I do plan on getting another copy for my sister in "tribute" to my Dad, now that I know that this is the real deal.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Classic! January 17, 2014
By M.Hobin
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is one of my favorite movies! The casting was superb and the acting great! This story is one of societal tension in a small Southern town as the changing times of the early 1960's bring about a radical turn of events. The main players are hot headed traditionalist wanting to make trouble against the cool tempered new leadership in town. As the plot develops it becomes clear that if people do not come together for the good of the town, things will become very bad for all! Bitterness on both sides continues to divide the town, watch the movie to see if the bitterness also conquers them all!

4.0 out of 5 stars Dated But Still Effective June 14, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I saw this film when I was a child and thought it was an effective portrayal of the old south back in the late 1960's and you will be surprised to learn the filming never got within a couple thousand miles of the south, it was filmed in Northern California. Jim Brown gives a convincing performance as the newly elected sheriff of an unknown southern state. George Kennedy delivers his usual high standard of acting, as the outgoing sheriff, who is caught between his bitterness at losing and doing the right thing. A great cast of character actors fills out the roster. The story is a bit thin at times, but the actors more than overcome these shortcomings and at the end everyone pulls together to protect the county from an outside threat.
