Pressure Point unfolds when a young psychiatrist (Peter Falk, TV s Columbo), exasperated by his failed attempts to help a black patient who hates whites asks to be reassigned. In a story told in flashback, his seasoned superior (Sidney Poitier, Guess Who s Coming To Dinner) recounts his own experience during the war when he treated a Nazi youth (Bobby Darin, Too Late Blues) who hated blacks.
A dark tale told through stark black & white imagery courtesy of Academy Award-winning cinematographer Ernest Haller (Hell s Five Hours, Mildred Pierce, Gone with the Wind), Pressure Point features fine tuned performances under the assured direction of Hubert Cornfield (The Night of the Following Day) from a screenplay co-written by Cornfield and S. Lee Pogostin based on a story by Robert M. Lindner.
