Movie Info

The faces of racism at work and at home provide the focus of this drama. When union members threaten to strike because their new foreman is black, the union boss persuades them not to by reminding them that a man's skin color has nothing to do with his competence and worth. His words take on a new meaning when at home he and his wife learn that their daughter has fallen in love with a Jamaican.

Critic Reviews for Flame in the Streets

All Critics (1)

Self-consciousness takes a heavy toll in this kind of British problem picture: however well-meaning and sincere in appearance, it is difficult to respond either to the characters or their backgrounds.
