Skokie

by

Roger Davidson

Excellent! A well-made dramatization, about citizens of Skokie, Illinois, who put on demonstrations against a planned march in their town by Neo-Nazis. One of the main reasons people are demonstrating is because a good deal of the town's citizens are Jewish concentration camp survivors.

Based on an actual event that happened in 1977, this is one of the best films ever made for television. Danny Kaye gives his last performance ever on film, as one of the many camp survivors. There are many other good performances too. Eli Wallach as the town's attorney, Brian Dennehy as the sheriff and George Dzundza as Neo-Nazi, Frank Collin. The subject is carefully handled and it argues many points about freedom of speech. If you can find this in your video stores-see it! It is impressive.

My Rating = Four Stars
