Flame in the Streets


Time Out says

A relatively early attempt to come to terms - in melodramatic form - with racism and the aspirations of black immigrants in Britain. Mills owns a furniture factory and is proud of his tolerance, endorsing a Jamaican's candidacy as shop steward. However, enlightened shop floor attitudes are one thing; his daughter marrying a black is quite another. It's a bit like a social thesis - Discuss - but its background of poor housing and gangs of teddy boys roving the streets like the Ku Klux Klan is convincing enough.
