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.

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.

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!

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.

A reminder of the civil rights era, Jim Brown is Jim Brown and the movie follows the hollywood tone of the time. Entertaining

although a bit dated by today's standards the film serves as sort of a 'poor man's' In the Heat of the Night. A small little town in the deep south has elected an African American as sheriff over the long serving "good ol" boy white sheriff. The town is divided strictly along racial lines and tranquility teeters on the edge when the black sheriff arrests a priviliged son of a power wielding white man from a neighboring county. The story is cliche' at times but the solid acting of former NFL great Jim Brown helps make it an entertaining and worthwhile film. The superb supporting work of George Kennedy and a minor role for hollywood icon Fredric March round out of a fine cast that includes Clifton James,Don Stroud,Mills Watson and another former pro football player Bernie Casey turn in solid efforts.I saw this in a theatre when i was just a kid and i was glad to buy it on DVD as my old VHS recording taken off the tv,was falling apart.

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".
