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 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.

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!

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.

An old favorite for the collection. I wonder what it would be like with Denzel Washington as the Sheriff, Harrison Ford or Clint Eastwood as the Mayor Tom Hanks as the Sheriff turned Deputy. Another choice Sutherland senior and junior with Denzell Washington. The original cast made this in politically sensitive times and it wasn't matched until A Time To Kill Another choice for Sheriff Jaime Foxx. it takes actors of that stature to make this type of movie work along with a good director. which brings us back to Eastwood and Hanks. Necessary for the serious collector of film. .

Though not a well-known picture, "...tick...tick...tick..." is, in my opinion, one of the two most even-handed treatments of the subject of racism that I have seen thus far (the other is "In The Heat of the Night").
The main characters are well-rounded -- a lot of other more widely-known pictures on the same subject tend to lack this quality. White people as well as black people are treated as ... well, people -- persons who have within them the propensity to be good, decent human beings when, as one minor character says, "we begin to understand each other."
The picture also demonstrates (correctly) that racism knows no color. The black man that Jim Brown's character arrests for rape is filled with just as much hate as the klansman sitting in the cell across the way from him, a reminder that mankind also has the propensity to be monsters, regardless of race.
As the title suggests, the tension can be felt at the get-go and steadily builds all the way to the climax. It has a very satisfying ending, although it gives a reminder at the end that there are many battles in the war over bigotry (the sheriff's wife is only slightly relieved when she hears her husband is okay and is coming home "this time.")

I saw Tick, Tick, Tick when it first came out and thoroughly enjoyed it. When VCRs were invented and then DVSs I always wanted it and could never locate it. Then I saw it on Amazon and couldn't wait to get a copy. I still enjoyed just like the first time. It's really a very good movie.

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".
