CAST: LEE J. COBB, KERWIN MATHEWS, GIA SCALA, ROBERT LOGGIA

Prodigal son Kerwin Mathews returns from Korea to find that father Lee J. Cobb has given anti-union gangsters an awful lot of say in the family business Roxton Fashions. Ironically, Aldrich was fired from the set of this pro-labor drama by Columbia’s Harry Cohn (not his last struggle with management) but not before giving it his signature combination of unblinking brutality and social outrage.
